MNOK 310 weapons control systems order

Kongsberg Protech has received an order valued at approximately MNOK 310 from General Dynamics Land Systems for the delivery of weapons control systems for armoured personnel carriers to the US Army. The order is for the US Army's Stryker program and the 5th of a total of six brigades.

The order is part of a framework agreement signed with General Dynamics Land Systems in 2000. The principle underlying KONGSBERG's weapons control system is that a soldier can operate an exterior weapon from inside an armoured personnel carrier, thus remaining protected from enemy fire.
