The US Army has awarded a $23.5m order to Norwegian company Kongsberg as part of the common remotely operated weapon station (CROWS) framework agreement worth $1.2bn.

CROWS is a joint acquisition programme for weapon stations signed in August 2007 to provide better protection capabilities, training, support and development to the US Army’s vehicle programmes.

The weapon system protects military troops by enabling the vehicle’s weapons to be operated while staying inside the vehicle.
