Indonesia has ordered the Norwegian Advanced Surface to Air Missile System (NASAMS) an air defense system from Kongsberg under a $77 million contract that includes command posts, radars, launchers and radios.
The NASAMS is a medium- to long-range air-defense system developed in partnership with Raytheon. The system is used by Norway, Finland, the Netherlands, the United States, Spain and Oman, a company press release said yesterday.
System integration, training and logistics support is also part of the contract. AMRAAM missiles for the system will be obtained by Indonesia through a separate government-to-government agreement with the United States, Kongsberg said.
"We are very pleased that Indonesia, as the first nation in its region, chooses NASAMS for its homeland defense," Kongsberg Defense & Aerospace President Eirik Lie said in a press release. "The continuous technical evolution and addition of users confirms that NASAMS is the most modern and advanced air defense system in the world."
