Switzerland Orders PROTECTOR RWS

Follow-on Order Valued at €22.8 Million

Swiss defence procurement authority armasuisse has signed a contract with Kongsberg Defence and Aerospace for additional deliveries of the company’s PROTECTOR remote weapon station (RWS), to the value of 230 MNOK (€22.8 million).

Switzerland has been a PROTECTOR RWS user for more than a decade, and since first selecting the system in 2007, has procured additional quantities on several occasions. Switzerland has installed the RWS on a variety of platforms, including armoured vehicles and patrol boats.

Kongsberg is very proud to continue being [a] trusted partner with the Defence Forces in Switzerland. This new order, along with the establishment of a Kongsberg Maintenance, Repair, Overhaul facility in Thun, Switzerland earlier this year further strengthens the strong relationship with Armasuisse”, commented Pål E Bratlie, Executive Vice President Protech Systems at Kongsberg.
