Naval Strike Missile
When searching for missiles for its new frigates and coastal corvettes, the Royal Norwegian Navy studied thoroughly existing missiles on the market and the planned upgrades of these. None of these missiles were found to satisfy the requirements of a modern navy well into 2015 and beyond. It was therefore decided to develop a completely new missile based on latest technology, the NSM.

NSM is a fifth generation long range precision strike missile already chosen by the Royal Norwegian Navy for its new frigates and new coastal corvettes and by the Polish Navy for use on its new coastal artillery installations.
