SP's MAI - - MILITARY -

Kongs­berg has re­ceived an or­der val­ued at NOK 196 mil­lion from the Swiss Army for the de­liv­ery of pro­tec­tor weapon con­trol sys­tem in­clud­ing lo­gis­tics for the Swiss ve­hi­cle pro­gramme GMTF RP13.

This con­tract is the fourth ma­jor Pro­tec­tor RWS con­tract be­tween the Swiss Army and Kongs­berg since 2006. De­liv­er­ies will com­mence by Fe­bru­ary 2015, and the sys­tems will be pro­duced in Kongs­berg, Nor­way.

Pro­tec­tor re­mote weapon sta­tion is de­signed for small and medium cal­i­bre weapons and can be in­stalled on any type of plat­form; it is a fully sta­bilised, com­bat proven sys­tem qual­i­fied for global op­er­a­tions. The pro­tec­tor weapon con­trol sys­tem pro­tects mil­i­tary troops by al­low­ing the ve­hi­cle’s weapons to be op­er­ated from a pro­tected po­si­tion in­side the ve­hi­cle.

As of 2013 the Pro­tec­tor has been cho­sen by 17 na­tions and Kongs­berg con­tin­ues to be the world’s lead­ing provider of re­mote weapon sta­tions.
