Kongsberg & Raytheon to Supply NASAMS to Australian Army

The Australian Government has announced that a National Advanced Surface to Air Missile System (NASAMS) solution will be developed for the Land 19 Phase 7B project – the Ground Based Air and Missile Defence capability for the Australian Army – through a Single Supplier Limited Tender process to Raytheon Australia.

Raytheon Australia has been identified as the Prime System Integrator and Kongsberg will be a major sub-contractor in the programme. NASAMS is a proven and fielded mobile air defence system in service with seven nations today, including Norway and the United States. The inherent flexibility and modularity of NASAMS makes it a world leading solution with unique capabilities to combat modern airborne threats, as well as having the ability to integrate with networks and a variety of different sensors and weapons.

We are pleased to see that NASAMS is recognised as the preferred ground based air defence capability solution for the Australian Army and we are looking forward to the process leading to a contract,“ Eirik Lie, President of Kongsberg Defence Systems, commented.
