Save this for later

Kongsberg has booked an order valued at NOK 315 millions from the US Army. The order is part of the increase of the Common Remotely Operated Weapon Stations (CROWS) framework agreement for up to 11.690 systems signed in February 2011.

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

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

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