South East Asian air defence system
After signing with Lithuania last week, Kongsberg has signed a contract worth U$77 million with the Indonesian Ministry of Defence to supply a NASAMS air defence system.
The contract comprises delivery of a complete NASAMS system with command posts, radars, launchers, radios and integration, and training and logistics support. AMRAAM missiles will be provided in a separate government-to-government agreement between Indonesia and the United States.
“We are very pleased that Indonesia, as the first nation in its region, chooses NASAMS for its homeland defence,” Eirik Lie, President of Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace, said. “The continuous technical evolution and addition of users confirms that NASAMS is the most modern and advanced air defense system in the world.”
