Norway, US Agree To Collaborate On Integration Of JSM On F-35

Joint Strike Missile Program Confirmed By Secretary Of Defense

Norwegian Defence Minister Espen Barth Eide said Thursday that the Norwegian Government has decided to start the process to finalize the development of the Joint Strike Missile (JSM) and its integration on F-35. The decision comes following Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta’s confirmation of US support for integration.

“It is of great importance that the US authorities have confirmed their support for the integration of the JSM on the F-35. In doing so, the operational needs of the Norwegian Armed Forces and international partners will be met. Furthermore, this will be an important contribution to the industrial content of the F-35 procurement. JSM is the world leader in its category and further strengthens the F-35's operational capacity," said Walter Qvam, CEO of Kongsberg.
 
Kongsberg has involved a number of Norwegian subcontractors in the first phases of the JSM development. Today's decision for the integration of JSM on F-35 open up new opportunities for a long-term Norwegian industrial success that may be worth as much as NOK 25 billion. In future full-scale production, the JSM program could translate into 450 jobs at Kongsberg and significant assignments for more than 100 Norwegian subcontractors for several decades", comments Harald Ånnestad, president of Kongsberg Defence Systems.
 
As part of the JSM development program, new operational capabilities will be developed and tested for subsequent upgrading of Kongsberg's Naval Strike Missile (NSM). The NSM is now in production for the Armed Forces of Poland and Norway.

Through the development of the Naval Strike Missile (NSM), the Norwegian Armed Forces established Kongsberg and other Norwegian industries as a top tier supplier of long-range, precision strike missiles that will meet military requirements over a 20 to 30-year time frame.
