Kongsberg awarded ADF Protector contract
Kongsberg has been awarded with a contract worth approximately MNOK 32 by the Australian Defence Force.
The new contract is related to the obsolescence management for PROTECTOR M151 Remote Weapon Stations, which has been delivered to Australia since 2004.
The Australian Defence Force procured 59 PROTECTOR M151s in 2004 as part of a rapid acquisition, intended to equip the ASLAV (Australian Light Armoured Vehicle) fleet ahead of operational rotation in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The stations will be updated and overhauled to today’s standards by KONGSBERG in Norway, and deliveries are expected to occur in September 2014.
