Kongsberg announces Norwegian NASAMS II contract
Kongsberg has announced that it will deliver an upgrade to the Royal Norwegian Air Force's NASAMS II air defence system under a 300 MNOK contract announced on 11 January.
Under the contract, Kongsberg will carry out work to upgrade the system’s existing missile launchers with new electronics and software for increased performance and lifetime extension.
Eirik Lie, Executive Vice President, Kongsberg Defence Systems, said: ‘The NASAMS II ground-based air defence system is an important integral part of Norway's air- and ground protection. NASAMS is the most sold air defence system in NATO, where Norway, with its experience and expertise, is a leading air-defence nation.’
The upgrade is scheduled to be completed within a timeframe of three years.
