Kongsberg unveils for the first time a Submarine Launched NSM at Balt Military Expo 2014
 
At the 13th Baltic Military Fair BALT-MILITARY-EXPO 2014 currently held in Gdansk, Poland, Kongsberg shows for the first time a concept of a submarine launched variant of its NSM (Naval Strike Missile). The missile is based on the JSM (the variant specifically designed to fit inside the F35 JSF jet's weapons bay). Kongsberg with its partner Nammo will design a specific booster to launch the missile after breaking out of the water.

Navy Recognition learned that the missile itself may be longer in size than the JSM in order to give it more range. This will be decided during the program definition phase in the 2nd half of 2014. The submarine launched NSM will be dual mission capable (both surface and land) but with emphasize on land attack missions.

The original NSM has a range of about 200 Km. Kongsberg is aiming at more than 300 Km for the submarine launched variant (but is still planning to remain below the limit set by international treaties regarding export of cruise missiles).

The capsule of the missile would be compatible with NATO's standard 533mm torpedo tubes allowing for potential interest from Norway, Poland, Germany, Netherlands and other countries.

In the program, Kongsberg is prime contractor with partnerships with Nammo and the FFI (Norway's Defense Research Establishment).
