Norway Conducted Very Successful NSM Test Firing

February 2, 2009 -- Late Saturday evening, Norwegian time, the Armed Forces conducted a very successful test firing of the Naval Strike Missile (NSM). The test firing demonstrated the highly advanced functionalities and performance of the NSM system developed by Kongsberg.

Fired at the Pt. Mugu artillery range in the US state of California, the missile completed the planned trajectory prior to striking the target ship. During its flight, the missile conducted a large number of advanced manoeuvres that clearly place it far ahead of competing systems.

The Naval Strike Missile (NSM) will be ready as scheduled for deployment on the Norwegian Navy's new Nansen and Skjold Class vessels.(
