Kongsberg awarded BAE Systems contract
Kongsberg has announced that it has signed a contract with BAE Systems to supply combat systems for military vehicles. BAE Systems, Sweden, is the main supplier to the Norwegian Army's upgrade programme of the CV90 infantry fighting vehicle.
Under the contract, worth 388 MNOK, Kongsberg will deliver the Integrated Combat Solution to CV90. The Integrated Combat Solution is a system based on open standards for connectivity and integration of sensors, weapons, communication networks and security systems. The system increases crew situational awareness and ability to operate swiftly and efficiently.
Kongsberg will lead a Norwegian team of Kongsberg, Thales Norway and Vinghøg for the contract. The Norwegian Army's upgrade programme of the CV90 also includes installations of new capabilities like Remote Weapon Stations (RWS). These are to be delivered through the Protector ‘Nordic’ contract, announced 21 December, 2011.
