Today Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace AS (KONGSBERG) was awarded a contract with the Norwegian Defence Materiel Agency (NDMA) to supply the Joint Strike Missile (JSM) for Norway’s fleet of F-35A Lightning II fighter aircrafts.

The development of the missile has been ongoing since 2008, and with this contract, completes development and test and enters a full rate production phase. This program secures employment and business for KONGSBERG and our extensive supply chain partners for years to come,” says Eirik Lie, President of Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace.

The JSM is a fifth-generation stealth air-to-surface missile developed to fulfill the F-35’s anti-surface warfare and land attack capability needs. The missile can be carried internally ensuring the aircraft’s low-signature capabilities, and it has superior performance against well-defended sea- and land targets across long distances.
