The Canadian Treasury Board announced that they have chosen Textron Systems to deliver the next generation of Tactical Armoured Patrol Vehicles (TAPV).
Textron Systems, the vehicle provider, is in a close partnership with KONGSBERG, for the delivery of an advanced Dual Remote Weapon Station (DRWS) tailor-made to address the specific TAPV requirements.
"We are very pleased to be chosen as the supplier of one of the top priority protection assets to the Canadian Armed Forces", says Egil Haugsdal, President of Kongsberg Protech Systems. This confirms the strong position of KONGSBERG’s RWS’ and strengthens our relationship with Textron Systems, the Canadian Government, as well as the Canadian Army which has utilized our PROTECTOR systems on international operations for many years.
The PROTECTOR TAPV DRWS is based on the existing PROTECTOR family of remote weapon stations from KONGSBERG. This innovative weapon station features, amongst other things, a coaxial weapon, dual user functionality and a surveillance mode. These enhancements will provide additional capabilities for the soldiers operating the vehicle. The PROTECTOR DRWS is a likely candidate as the future RWS platforms for the Canadian Army.
The PROTECTOR DRWS will be produced in KONGSBERG’s production facilities in London, Ontario, Canada, and initial deliveries for verification and testing are expected to start first half of 2013.
