KONGSBERG will be outsourcing a large production order to Kitron ASA in Arendal for the fabrication of the BET (operator terminal).
KONGSBERG has supplied a large number of VHF radios in recent years, including the LFR (Light Field Radio), as well as the MRR. The Norwegian Armed Forces’ tactical communications and network equipment programme is one of the largest radio development projects in Norwegian history. The MRR (portable and vehicle-mounted) and the LFR (carried by a soldier) are used by several thousand soldiers and are mounted on numerous vehicles.
KITRON is a key supplier for several of KONGSBERG’s advanced military products, e.g. the Remote Weapon Station, missile electronics (NSM and JSM) and tactical military communications equipment.
