Swiss Army selects Kongsberg Protector RWS

16th December 2013 - 16:17 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Kongsberg will supply the Swiss Army with the Protector Weapon Control System under a new £19.5 million contract. The order is part of the Swiss Army’s GMTF RP13 vehicle programme.

The Protector Remote Weapon Station (RWS) is designed for small and medium calibre weapons and can be installed on any type of platform; it is a fully stabilised, combat proven system qualified for global operations. The Protector Weapon Control System protects military troops by allowing the vehicle's weapons to be operated from a protected position inside the vehicle.

The contract also includes logistics, and deliveries on the RWS will begin in February 2015.

According to the company, this contract is the fourth major Protector RWS contract between the Swiss Army and Kongsberg since 2006.
