Defence and security
KONGSBERG has, in cooperation with the Norwegian Armed Forces, developed anti-ship missiles that help secure national sovereignty in Norwegian ocean territories, air defence systems that secure our military airbases, weapon stations that secure our armed forces and technology that monitors maritime transport. A national defence industry contributes to make Norway less vulnerable and will secure our autonomy as a democracy.
