Government seeks Parliamentary nod to Joint Strike Missile development. The Norwegian government has announced it is to ask for Parliament’s approval to invest in further development of the F-35‘s new Joint Strike Missile (JSM). Ministry of Defence Under-Secretary, Roger Ingebrigtsen, says the JSM, “will satisfy an important operational requirement, at the same time as its development could create significant industrial possibilities for Norway.” The JSM, based on the current Naval Strike Missile (NSM), is both an air-to-surface and anti-ship long-range missile, adapted and designed to be carried inside the F-35 by Kongsberg Defence Systems.

Ministry of Defence Under-Secretary, Roger Ingebrigtsen, says the JSM, “will satisfy an important operational requirement, at the same time as its development could create significant industrial possibilities for Norway.”

The JSM, based on the current Naval Strike Missile (NSM), is both an air-to-surface and anti-ship long-range missile, adapted and designed to be carried inside the F-35 by Kongsberg Defence Systems.

Total second-stage development costs for the JSM are estimated to be 1,029 million kroner, with the value of the government’s contract with Kongsberg worth approximately half.

Last week, Defence Minister Grete Faremo announced it is to purchase the first four of 56 JSF Lightning-IIs for 4.8 billion kroner, with an expected delivery date of 2016.
