Ukraine to receive anti-drone systems from Norway

Aug 14, 2023

The Norwegian company Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace has signed a contract with the International Fund for Ukraine (IFU), led by the United Kingdom, to supply Ukraine with anti-drone systems.

The company announced this on its website.

The batch to be delivered to Ukraine consists of several CORTEX Typhon systems designed to counter a wide range of UAVs with solutions to physically defeat or otherwise disable the airborne threat.

The contract is worth £56 million.


"This contract will provide a significant capability enhancement to the Ukrainian Armed Forces and support their ability to defend their people and country against airborne threats," commented Erik Lee, President of Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace.

The CORTEX Typhon C-UAS is based on field-proven Teledyne Flir and KONGSBERG software and hardware, including the KONGSBERG Surveillance and Armed Remote Workstation (RWS) and the CORTEX Integrated Combat Solution (ICS).

The Norwegian Armed Forces provided Ukraine with Dingo vehicles, machine guns, and ammunition for this system.
