US Army places CROWS order

19th September 2019 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US Army has placed a new $48 million order with Kongsberg for Common Remote Weapon Stations (CROWS), the company announced on 18 September.

Since the US Army awarded Kongsberg the first CROWS contract in 2007, the company has delivered more than 16,000 remote weapon station systems to the army.

Kongsberg will deliver the orders as part of its IDIQ contract with the army awarded in September 2018.

Pål Bratlie, executive vice president in Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace, said: ‘This new contract confirms the US Army’s trust in Kongsberg, and our ability as the sole provider for the US armed forces to deliver battle proven CROWS systems that they know enhances their soldiers' protection in various missions.

‘Kongsberg has a unique and unmatched position in the market, having competitively defended our remote weapon station position and contracts three times in the previous 12 years. We are proud to have provided soldiers with the latest technology and reliable solutions for many years, and look forward to further develop and strengthen this relationship.’
