ARGE NNbS seeks to address German military requirements for short-range and very short-range air defence.

Three companies are joining forces as ARGE NNbS to submit an offer for the future German short-range and very short-range air defence system called LVS NNbS.

Diehl Defence, Hensoldt Sensors and Rheinmetall Electronics signed an agreement to co-operate in the ARGE special partnership. LVS NNbS ‘bridges a current capability gap when it comes to protecting [German] ground troops during deployed operations as well as securing tactical operation centres and other assets against short- and very short-range aerial threats’,  Rheinmetall noted in a 30 March statement.

ARGE NNbS aims to deliver an indigenous and low-risk solution for Germany with comprehensive logistics support. The solution will be based on commercially available systems and components, ‘including integration of components already in use by the Bundeswehr’, Rheinmetall added.
