Norway Upgrades the NASAMS Air Defence System

Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace AS (KONGSBERG) has been awarded a contract of approx. MNOK 266 by Norwegian Materiel Defence Agency for upgrade of the National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System (NASAMS).

The upgrade of the NASAMS Sentinel radar’s Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) ensures the system operates in accordance with future NATO standards, further improving the already secure identification of friendly aircraft.

“Norway continues to upgrade their ground-based air defence capability by implementing the latest available technology. The modernization will enhance NATO commonality and reinforce the NASAMS capability,” says Kjetil Reiten Myhra, Executive Vice President of Integrated Defence Systems in KONGSBERG.

NASAMS is renowned for its distributed architecture and flexible network solution capable of solving a wide variety of air defence missions.
