Kongsberg Lands $1.5B Army Remote Weapon Station Supply Contract

Kongsberg’s defense and aerospace business unit will continue to equip the U.S. Army’s armored vehicles with a weapon system for target identification and engagement under a five-year, $1.5 billion contract.

The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract covers the delivery of the Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station, which is part of the Kongsberg’s Protector family of remote weapon stations, the Norwegian company said Monday.

CROWS uses fire control software and a sensor suite intended to help warfighters identify and engage a target while inside a combat vehicle.

Kongsberg initially secured a CROWS production contract from the Army in 2007 and has since delivered more than 18,000 units of the system’s M151 and M153 variants.
