The Spanish Navy plans to equip both the existing F-100 and the new F-110 with NSM. Additional information will be announced when the contract is awarded.
Kongsberg cannot provide any further comment on the potential size of this contract.
Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace also informed that it has received an order from Raytheon Missiles & Defense for Naval Strike Missiles (NSM) to the US Navy Over-The-Horizon Weapon System (OTH WS) program worth MNOK 328.
Raytheon is prime contractor to the US Navy.
The order is related to the OTH WS framework agreement announced 31 May 2018 with a total cumulative scope of BNOK 7.8. So far, KONGSBERG has received orders for MNOK 1 762 under this framework agreement.
“We register a significant increase in the annual call-offs. This creates jobs and demand for increased production capacity, both for us and our suppliers. As announced at KONGSBERG’s CMD in June, the company has started a significant investment in a new missile factory,” says Director of the Missile Systems division Øyvind Kolset.
