Raytheon Missile Systems has received an initial contract to produce NSM (Naval Strike Missile) missiles launchers.
Kongsberg Defence Systems awarded the initial contract for qualification units. The award follows a July announcement that Raytheon Missile Systems will produce NSM launchers in the U.S. The company also plans to perform final assembly, integration and test of the Naval Strike Missile at Raytheon’s Tucson, Arizona facility.
With a range of more than 100 nautical miles, NSM is a long-range, anti-ship missile.
