Kongsberg to Supply MINESNIPER Mk III Mine Disposal Weapon System to Royal Norwegian Navy
 
Kongsberg Defence Systems (KONGSBERG) has signed a contract for supply of the MINESNIPER Mk III One Shot Mine Disposal Weapon System to the Royal Norwegian Navy. The contract is won in international competition and made between the Norwegian Defence Logistics Organisation and KONGSBERG, represented by the Naval Systems & Surveillance division.
     
The B-1B Lancer may have made its name supporting ground troops and destroying land-based targets, but the Air Force is now developing tactics for using the aircraft over the ocean. A B-1B Lancer from Dyess Air Force Base, Texas, alongside other bomber and fighter aircraft, participated in a maritime tactics development and evaluation Sept. 4 with the goal of improving and better understanding the aircraft's capabilities in the new environment.

The MINESNIPER Mk III System will support the needs of the Armed Forces by introducing new and flexible capabilities for inspection and disarmament of Sea-Mines in the Royal Norwegian Navy. The System consists of a number of MINESNIPER Mk III combat vehicles, inspection/training vehicles, logistics and services for integration into the Command and Control System on-board the Navy's six Mine Countermeasure Vessels (MCMV).
