The US Army has awarded a contract to Norway-based Kongsberg Gruppen to provide common remotely operated weapon stations (CROWS).

The NKr1.2bn ($202.8m) contract is an increase of the CROWS framework agreement for up to 10,349 systems, which was originally signed in December 2009.

CROWS is a joint acquisition programme for weapon stations for the US Army’s vehicle programmes, which will improve efficiency in terms of protection, training and support.

The protector weapon control system in the CROWS II configuration protects military troops by allowing the crew to operate the weapons stations from a protected position within the vehicle.

The Protector integrates light and medium-calibre guns as well as missile and grenade launchers.
