Important reference Since KONGSBERG and Raytheon introduced an exclusive international partnership in 1996, five NATO nations have chosen air defence Battle Management Command and Control systems from KONGSBERG and Raytheon. The U.S. Army as the worldŽs biggest defence force is an important reference and partner for a continued international marketing effort of SLAMRAAM.
The first KONGSBERG contract for the air defence system was signed with the Royal Norwegian Air Force in 1989 through the NASAMS program.
