Kongsberg Defence Systems has won a contract from the Royal Norwegian Navy for supply of the MineSniper Mk III One Shot Mine Disposal Weapon System.
The MineSniper Mk III System will support the needs of the Armed Forces by introducing new and flexible capabilities for inspection and disarmament of Sea-Mines in the Royal Norwegian Navy. The System consists of a number of MineSniper Mk III combat vehicles, inspection/training vehicles, logistics and services for integration into the Command and Control System on-board the Navy's six Mine Countermeasure Vessels (MCMVs).
“The MineSniper Mk III System will enable MCM operations to be performed in a safer, more rapid and more efficient way. This contract is the result of a long term effort to strengthen our position as supplier of MCM systems, and in this context this is a very important reference contract for Kongsberg”, says Executive Vice President Leiv Inge Steig in Kongsberg Defence Systems.
