KONGSBERG will be outsourcing a large production order to Kitron ASA in Arendal for the fabrication of the BET (operator terminal). BET is a Mid-Life Upgrade of the existing MRR (Multi Role Radio) system. It will add functionality and extend the life of the system into the 2020s.

KONGSBERG has supplied a large number of VHF radios in recent years, including the LFR (Light Field Radio), as well as the MRR. The Norwegian Armed Forces' tactical communications and network equipment programme is one of the largest radio development projects in Norwegian history. The MRR (portable and vehicle-mounted) and the LFR (carried by a soldier) are used by several thousand soldiers and are mounted on numerous vehicles.

KONGSBERG is a leading Norwegian industrial player that sets high standards for its suppliers. With emphasis on alignment with our values, suppliers must demonstrate determination, innovation, credibility and the ability to cooperate continuously and to develop in terms of both quality and skills. Close cooperation is required in order to develop demanding technological solutions in collaboration with Armed Forces users.

KITRON is a key supplier for several of KONGSBERG's advanced military products, e.g. the Remote Weapon Station, missile electronics (NSM and JSM) and tactical military communications equipment.
