Kongsberg has received a new contract from Switzerland's Federal Office for Defence Procurement for the Protector Remote Weapon Station (RWS). The contract, announced on 7 February, is worth $15.6 million.

The company will deliver the RWS in an updated configuration with new advanced capabilities for new platforms.

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

Espen Henriksen, president of Kongsberg Protech Systems, said: 'Kongsberg has delivered Protector RWS to Switzerland since 2007. This configuration is the result of a close cooperation with the customer to develop the system for a new generation of platforms.'
