Kongsberg Defence and Aerospace has been awarded a follow-on contract by Japan, valued at 450 MNOK (€44.7 million) to supply the Joint Strike Missile (JSM) for that nation’s F-35 fleet.

The JSM is a 5th generation stealth air-to surface missile that can be carried internally in the F-35, thus ensuring the aircraft’s low-signature capabilities. It has superior performance against well-defended naval and land targets at long ranges.

The international F-35 user community is showing great interest in the JSM. Kongsberg is very proud to have been selected by Japan to provide the JSM for their F-35 fleet. Our relationship is growing even stronger with this follow-on contract,“ commented company President, Eirik Lie.
