Kongsberg turret for SAIC ARV
Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) has selected Kongsberg to provide the turret for its Advanced Reconnaissance Vehicle (ARV) being offered to the US Marine Corps.
The company will design and manufacture an advanced, remote medium calibre turret that includes CORTEX ICS vetronics and combat services solutions.
Pål Bratlie, executive vice president, Kongsberg, said: ‘We have been building upon our Stryker medium calibre turret experience for the past three years to develop a lighter, more lethal solution set. This advanced turret meets not only the US Marine Corps’ needs, but also delivers scalability across multiple platforms for tremendous growth capacity.’
SAIC was chosen to deliver an ARV technology demonstrator to the Office of Naval Research and the US Marine Corps in September.
