    Australia signs deal with Kongsberg to support Joint Strike Missile development

    Australia's Department of Defence (DoD) has signed a contract with Norwegian company Kongsberg to integrate technologies developed by BAE Systems Australia into the Joint Strike Missile (JSM).

    The contract, worth NOK150 million (USD17.4 million), enables Kongsberg to continue the integration and qualification of BAE Systems Australia's passive radio frequency (RF) seeker sensor into the missile, which is being developed by the Norwegian company for installation onto the Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.

    Kongsberg said the seeker sensor will enable the JSM to locate targets on the basis of their electronic signature, further strengthening the capabilities of the missile.

    Outlining its work under the contract, BAE Systems Australia said that it would provide an electronic support measure (ESM) receiver for incorporation on the JSM "which will feature an additional land attack and littoral attack capability as well as a two-way communications line for target adjustment and inflight termination".
