KONGSBERG is the world’s leading provider of Remote Weapon Stations (RWS) and has to date delivered 20.000 PROTECTOR systems to a total of 19 nations.

The PROTECTOR family of Remote Weapon Stations are systems suitable for any mission whether on land or at sea, on mobile or static platforms, for remote operation of payloads ranging from small caliber weapons to medium caliber automatic cannons. The system is modular, and all of the different variants of the PROTECTOR RWS share the same baseline technology.

The PROTECTOR RWS is a proven product based on millions of hours of operational experience in combat zones combined with a close cooperation with Defense Forces worldwide. The PROTECTOR has an unprecedented Operational Readiness Rate of 99%.

The PROTECTOR RWS is built for operation in extreme environmental conditions with capabilities that allow soldiers to operate from a protected position using stabilized precision optics and laser to observe, detect and engage targets with increased ac­curacy and reduced collateral damage.

The fully stabilized system provides unmatched observation and engagement capa­bilities where the gunner is enabled to keep his sights on target, independent of the ballistic solution for the weapon in use.
