Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace has signed a contract with the Danish Ministry of Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organisation (DALO) for delivery of the PROTECTOR Remote Weapon Station (RWS) to the Danish Army. The contract, valued at 270MNOK (€26.6 million), was won in an international competitive bidding process.

This contract underlines our leading technology within RWS and consolidates our strong position in Europe,“ commented Pål E Bratlie, Executive Vice President Protech Systems, Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace AS.
