Kongsberg to Deliver Counter (C-UAS) to Germany

Kongsberg to Deliver Counter (C-UAS) to Germany 5 December, 2019

Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace AS (Kongsberg) is integrating the Hensoldt Spexer radar for UAS detection and tracking into its Counter-UAV system for Germany.

Kongsberg has entered into a contract with Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment (BAAINBw) to deliver a Counter Unmanned Aerial System (C-UAS) based on the Protector Remote Weapon Station.

The contract worth 250 MNOK was won in an international bidding process.

Germany is the first country to acquire a C-UAS solution with the Protector as a kinetic effector. The emergence of inexpensive, small unmanned aerial systems (UAS), also referred to as drones, poses a relatively new threat to both military units as well as civilian infrastructure and events, such as airports, government buildings, power plants, political gatherings and sporting events. The Protector RWS C-UAS has a rapid deployment and reaction time, and is highly mobile.
