Kongsberg and LM Signs Contract for New Norwegian Air Surveillance Radars

Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace (KONGSBERG) and Lockheed Martin signed a contract for KONGSBERG’s support of the delivery of the TPY-4 radar to Norway for the Norwegian Radar Sensor (NORSE) Project.

Through this ca 900 MNOK contract, KONGSBERG will be a significant partner and subcontractor to Lockheed Martin for the deliveries to the NORSE project. The KONGSBERG scope of delivery includes hardware, software and final assembly and test of the TPY-4 radar systems before installation at the radar sites.

“This contract with Lockheed Martin exemplifies the importance of building durable and trusted partnerships to serve both national and international customers. Together we will deliver world class radar technology to the Norwegian Armed Forces. This contract is not only important for KONGSBERG but also for our subcontractors in Norway,” says President of Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace, Eirik Lie.

TPY 4 is an internationally available, transportable, multi-mission radar that can operate in contested RF environments. TPY-4 – fully digital at every element – integrates the latest mature commercial technologies to create a revolutionary radar architecture. It provides flexibility to optimize performance for specific missions, threats, and environments while also providing ease of adaptation to future advanced threats.

“The TPY-4 is a low risk solution for the Norwegian Ministry of Defence, due to the fact that the radar is already in production ahead of the program selection. We are grateful to have been selected to help protect the safety of Norwegians,” said Rick Herodes, Program Management Director of Ground Based Air Surveillance Radars at Lockheed Martin. “Norway joins the U.S. Air Force as our first NATO partner for this franchise radar product, and we look forward to additional international partnerships in the near future.”

“Through this contract, we exploit current, existing technology, ensuring a solid base for this new capability to Norway. Investments like this also provides opportunities for technological developments in both existing and new areas. We look forward to working with our partner Lockheed Martin, utilizing each other's strengths, to deliver solutions for tomorrow’s needs,” says EVP Integrated Defence Systems, Kjetil Reiten Myhra

In 2018 Lockheed Martin and KONGSBERG signed a Teaming Agreement for cooperation on the delivery of TPY-4 radars to international customers.
