“This announcement highlights the close partnership shared between the KONGSBERG teams in Norway and Australia both working together to ensure our local workforce has the technical skills and expertise to support this transformational capability for the Australian Army,” said John Fry, Kongsberg Defence Australia’s General Manager.

Valued at AUD 9 million, this contract includes the provision of recurring support services for Kongsberg-provided sub-systems such as the Fire Distribution Centre, Canister Launcher, and NASAMS Classroom Trainer, as well as the provision of Field Service Representatives.
