Kongsberg Geospatial, Hanwha Defense USA Collaborate on Canadian Army’s Land Program

Kongsberg Geospatial and Hanwha Defense USA have signed a memorandum of agreement to jointly respond to the Canadian military’s ground combat needs.

Under the agreement, KG, the Canadian subsidiary of Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace, will oversee the local implementation of the Integrated Combat Solution on all Hanwha K9/K10 self-propelled howitzer artillery vehicles.

“With the MOU signed with Hanwha, we are excited to introduce a world-class digital integration platform for the urgent and future land programs of the Canadian Army,” said Tuhin Das, director of business development for Canada at Kongsberg Geospatial.

The ICS is a fully digitized platform that is easily adaptable and scalable for new and existing military vehicles.

The technology is equipped with KG’s TerraLens Software Development Kit, which enables users to visualize track data with real-time precision from inside their vehicles.

When combined with Hanhwa’s K9 Thunder self-propelled howitzer, the ICS creates a holistic system that promises enhanced crew efficiency.

According to KG, ICS variants are in use in the United States, Australia, Norway and Finland.

The MOU follows the years-long collaboration between KDA and South Korea’s Hanwha. 

In 2017, Kongsberg Defence Systems and Hanwha Land Systems also signed a contract to provide the ICS platform for military vehicles to the Finnish Defence Forces.
