US Army increases Kongsberg CROWS II contract value
Kongsberg has announced that the US Army has issued it a contract modification that increases the company’s Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station (CROWS) II frame contract by NOK 508 million for the purchase of spare parts and depot support. The company made the announcement 5 July 2012.
Kongsberg said it has also received purchase orders for spare parts and depot support valued NOK 198 million under this modification. The initial CROWS II framework agreement was issued in August 2007.
CROWS is a joint acquisition programme for weapon stations for the US Army`s vehicle programmes. 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.
