Norway's Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace AS announced last week that it has been awarded an extension to the CROWS remote weapon station systems frame contract with the U.S. Army. The extension valued at approximately $500 million is contingent upon future demand and annual allocations.

In its statement, Kongsberg said that it continues to develop new, advanced versions of remote weapon station systems as well as make serial deliveries to the U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force.

The company claims that it is the world's leading provider of remote weapon stations, with more than 20,000 systems sold to 26 nations worldwide in the last 14 years.
