The Ministry of Defence of Indonesia has contracted Kongsberg to supply the Norwegian advanced surface-to-air missile system (NASAMS).

The $77m contract includes delivery of a complete NASAMS system with command posts, radars, launchers, radios and integration and training and logistics support.

Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace president Eirik Lie said: “We are very pleased that Indonesia, as the first nation in its region, chooses NASAMS for its homeland defence.”

The NASAMS air defence system features an open architecture to facilitate the integration of sensors and launchers in order to provide battle management, command, control, computers, communications, and intelligence (BMC4I) air defence capability.

“The NASAMS air defence system features an open architecture to facilitate the integration of sensors and launchers.”

Using a 3D pencil beam radar to detect and track targets, the system employs the advanced medium range air-to-air missiles (AMRAAMs) as primary weapons that are identical to those used on fighter aircraft.

It also offers single and multiple engagement capabilities, beyond visual range capability with active seeker missile, high survivability against electronic countermeasures, and look-down / shoot-down capability.

In addition to Indonesia, NASAMS has been selected by several other nations, including Norway, Finland, the Netherlands, the US, Spain, and Oman.

Indonesia will also receive AMRAAM missiles, under a separate government-to-government agreement signed with the US.
