Kongsberg Defence and Aerospace has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Navantia to support the Royal Norwegian Navy’s Fridjof Nansen-class F-310 frigates.

Under this MoU, both companies will explore potential ways to work together in the future modernisation and upgradation of the vessels.

The collaboration will also focus on delivering solutions for the Norwegian Armed Forces.

Being one of the major sub-contractors for Nansen-class frigate programme, Kongsberg has delivered the national parts of the combat system and navigations system for the ships.

The systems included anti-surface and anti-submarine warfare solutions, which were designed and developed based on Kongsberg’s combat management system architecture.

Over the past several years, the company has been supporting the vessels.
