Finnish optronics specialist Senop has signed a contract with Norway’s Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace to supply integrated fire distribution centres (FDC) to an international National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System (NASAMS) programme. The contract consists of FDCs integrated into shelter systems along with spare parts.
The FDC is a proven and fielded battle management, command, control, communications, computers and intelligence (BMC4I) module delivering scalable, mobile and intuitive BMC4I for current and future air defence and surface-to-surface missile applications. The FDC integrates systems, sensors, and effectors into one system to provide a complete picture of the battlespace.
This latest contract is a continuation of the partnership between Senop and Kongsberg, which started in 2009 when Finland acquired the NASAMS air defence system. Since then Senop has been involved in Kongsberg’s NASAMS export programmes as a trusted supplier.
“Our long-term relation is built on trust, hard work, seamless co-operation and great professionals,” Senop’s managing director, Aki Korhonen, was quoted as saying in a company press release.
Approached by ESD on 30 May, Korhonen said he could not detail the customer, value or quantities involved in the contract due to reasons of confidentiality.
