Contract for JSM test missiles
Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace AS (KONGSBERG) has signed a contract worth 700M NOK 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 finalization 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”, says Eirik Lie, President Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace AS.
