Kongsberg signed a contract with the Polish Ministry of National Defence for an NSM (Naval Strike Missile) Coastal Defence System valued at NOK 1.3 Billion.

The radar system, communications system and trucks carrying launch ramps are provided by Polish subcontractors. The NSM is a fifth generation Strike Missile, developed by KONGSBERG for the Norwegian Navy.

NSM reached Initial Operational Capability on the new Norwegian Fridtjof Nansen Class frigates and the new Norwegian Skjold Class corvettes in 2012.  

"This agreement proves the leading position of NSM and our position as a reliable partner and supplier to Poland.

Polish industry and KONGSBERG successfully delivered the first NSM Coastal Defence Squadron through a close cooperation with the Polish Government.
