Ukraine is to receive Counter Unmanned Aircraft Systems (C-UAS) from Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace.
Under a contract with the International Fund for Ukraine, the company will deliver several Cortex Typhon systems for £56 million.
“This contract will provide a significant capability boost for the Armed Forces of Ukraine and will support their ability to protect their people and defend their country against aerial threats,” said Eirik Lie, President of Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace.
The Cortex Typhon C-UAS is based on field-proven software and hardware from Teledyne Flir and Kongsberg, including surveillance systems and Kongsberg Remote Weapon Station (RWS) and Cortex Integrated Combat Solution (ICS).
As part of the delivery, the Norwegian Government has donated Dingo 2 vehicles, Kongsberg RWS and weapons.
