Kongsberg Defence Communications wins contract in Oman
Kongsberg Defence Communications (KDC) has been commissioned by the Oman Ministry of Defense to deliver tactical communications systems, in the form of complete mobile networks. The contract is valued at about 95 million Norwegian krones ($13.2 million) and will run for two years.
The contract includes the delivery of newly developed hub technology that makes it possible to offer military users Internet solutions, in addition to already established military communications solutions.
"This technology will be important for all military customers as people begin to recognize the necessity of adapting established solutions to the needs entailed by new military leadership concepts, such as network-based defense", remarks President of KDC Bjørn Wiggo Bjune.
KDC is a subsidiary of Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace. The company has an administration and five profit centers, in addition to four subsidiaries. The company is a niche supplier, focusing mainly on anti-ship missiles, command and control systems, and communications. — (menareport.com)
