The NSM is a fifth generation Strike Missile, developed by KONGSBERG for the Norwegian Navy. NSM reached Initial Operational Capability on the new Norwegian Fridtjof Nansen Class frigates and the new Norwegian Skjold Class corvettes in 2012. NSM was also recently tested by the US Navy on LCS (Littoral Combat Ship) #4 Coronado.

“This agreement proves the leading position of NSM and our position as a reliable partner and supplier to Poland. Polish industry and KONGSBERG successfully delivered the first NSM Coastal Defence Squadron through a close cooperation with the Polish Government. With this contract we continue our ambition of involving even more Polish companies and expand our cooperation into a broader technological arena”, says Harald Ånnestad, President of Kongsberg Defence Systems.
