Report: Australia, Norway Ink Fighter Missile Tech Collaboration Pact

F-35Australia and Norway signed a partnership agreement last week to build and embed a radio frequency seeker technology in Norwegian-made joint strike missiles designed to integrate with the F-35 aircraft, Defense News reported Monday.

Lara Seligman writes Australia agreed to fund the project and chose BAE Systems‘ Australian arm to help develop the RF-seeking platform.

The two countries could also share the cost of embedding JSMs onto their F-35 jets through the agreement, the publication reports.

Kongsberg Defence Systems manufactures the long-range missile system for anti-surface warfare and naval fire support operations, the company wrote on its website.

The missile’s RF seeker will be built with an electronic signature-based imaging infrared device intended to locate and detect targets, Seligman reports.
