Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace AS has signed a contract worth 700 million NOK (AUD$ 116 million) with the Norwegian Defence Materiel Agency for JSM test missiles for the integration phase on the F-35.

As a result of the successful flight test in March and finalisation of the development phase in June, the project enters into an F-35 integration phase up to 2023. This phase includes delivery of a number of test missiles, captive-carriage, safe separation, and live firing tests.

“The JSM project continues on schedule and is the only 5th generation missile available on F-35 representing a significant market potential,” according to Eirik Lie, president Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace AS.
