Kongsberg Protech has signed a contract valued at MNOK 32 with the US Army. The contract encompasses the delivery of weapons control systems, and contains options that can increase the scope of the contract to MNOK 50. This is the first contract KONGSBERG has signed directly with the US Army.
The weapons control system was developed to protect shooters on armoured personnel carriers. Weapons and advanced sensors are mounted on the outside of the vehicle, while the operator remotely controls the system from a protected position inside the vehicle. The system has previously been sold to Norway, the USA, Australia and Finland.
