Kongsberg Receives $336.5 Million Contract from U.S. Army for CROWS

Last week, KONGSBERG received a contract valued at $336.5 million from

the United States Army for the delivery of additional PROTECTOR Remote

Weapon Stations (RWS) to be used in the M1A2 Abrams Modernization

Program and on Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles. This

order is part of the $1.4 billion Common Remotely Operated Weapon

Station (CROWS II) framework agreement signed in August 2007.

“The Kongsberg CROWS II has been in use on multiple wheeled vehicles in

theater, but this marks the first time that our RWS has been integrated

onto a tracked combat vehicle,” said Knut Saeter, Vice President of

Kongsberg Protech Systems in Alexandria, VA. “This contract demonstrates

the flexibility of Kongsberg’s RWS to be employed on an even wider range

of vehicles.”

The PROTECTOR RWS, a part of the KONGSBERG family of Remote Weapon

Stations, is designed to increase troop safety and precision by enabling

the operator to acquire and engage targets while inside the protection

of a vehicle. Intended to mount on a variety of vehicle platforms and

support numerous weapon systems, the PROTECTOR RWS has over 20 million

hours of operation and more than 8 million hours of combat operation

since 2001. With headquarters in Norway and production facilities in

Johnstown, PA, Kongsberg Protech Systems is the world’s leading supplier

of remote weapon stations.

Kongsberg Protech Systems is a business area within KONGSBERG. KONGSBERG

is an international, knowledge-based group that supplies high-technology

systems and solutions to customers engaged in the oil and gas industry,

the merchant marine, and the defense and aerospace industries. In 2008,

KONGSBERG had a turnover of NOK 11 billion (approx. US $1.8 billion),

and the Group had 5,359 employees in more than 25 countries as of 30

June 2009. KONGSBERG is listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange.

This contract was announced to the Oslo Stock Exchange on 24 September,

2009.
