Kongsberg Defence and Aerospace has selected Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group to supply container systems to house the fire distribution centre (FDC) for the National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System (NASAMS), the British company announced on 3 October.
Kongsberg is to supply NASAMS to one of its key customers and selected Marshall to manufacture and provide its modular, reconfigurable containers following a competitive tender.
“We selected Marshall because of their competitive prices, their high standards of design and manufacture, speed of response and willingness to work collaboratively with Kongsberg," commented the Norwegian company’s Executive Vice President, Kjetil Myhra.
Marshall’s container systems provide operators with a comfortable and protected working area, even when deployed in extreme environments, and can be rapidly reconfigured to suit changing deployment needs. The robust containers feature advanced equipment that is protected from the rigours of military transport on land and in the air.
“We hope this will be the beginning of a long and productive relationship, as Kongsberg continues to achieve further success with NASAMS in its key markets around the world,” stated Marshall SDG CEO, Alistair McPhee.
