4th July 2012 - 16:06 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Kongsberg has signed a contract modification with the US Army increasing the existing CROWS II frame contract by NOK 508 million for the purchase of spare parts and depot support, the company announced on 4 July.

The Company has also received purchase orders for spare parts and depot support valued at NOK 198 million under the modification.

'CROWS is a joint acquisition program for weapon stations for the US Army`s vehicle programmes. A common solution will result in substantial efficiency gains in respect of protection, training, support and further development,' Kongsberg said in a statement.

The initial CROWS II framework agreement was disclosed on 22 August 2007.

The Protector Weapon Control System protects military troops by allowing the vehicle's weapons to be operated from a protected position inside the vehicle.
