Kongsberg Defence Systems has signed 150 MNOK (US$17.3 million) contract with Australian Defense ministry for integration of a new capability in the Joint Strike Missile (JSM).
This contract is a result of the agreement reached between the Norwegian and Australian Governments initialized during the visit by Norwegian State Secretary of Defence, Mr. Øystein Bø to Australia in 2015, the company announced today.
JSM is the 5th generation long-range precision strike missile that will be integrated for internal carriage on the F-35.
Using a combination of advanced materials, ability to fly low, while following the terrain and using advanced passive seekers, the missile is extremely difficult to detect and stop even for the most advanced countermeasures and defence systems.
The RF-seeker sensor, developed by BAE Systems Australia, will enable JSM to locate targets on the basis of their electronic signature. This will further strengthen the capabilities of JSM for the most challenging scenarios in a modern battlefield.
