Two successful NSM tests
This weekend, KONGSBERG conducted two successful test firings of the NSM (Naval Strike Missile) in California, USA.
The test firings were part of the Norwegian Navy's final approval of the development phase. The tests were conducted in the U.S. because the Americans have a test firing range that allows the missile to be tested over land and sea alike. This is essential for testing several of the missile's functions.
These successful test firings confirm the missile's highly sophisticated features, and capabilities over and above what is currently demonstrated by any anti ship missile. As planned, the missile is ready for deployment on board the new Nansen class frigates and on the new missile torpedo boats.
