The National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System, best known as NASAMS™, is a highly adaptable mid-range air defense solution. NASAMS consists of the Sentinel radar, Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile, and KONGSBERG's Fire Distribution Center.

NASAMS provides air defenders with a tailorable, state-of-the-art defense system that can maximize their ability to identify, engage and destroy current and evolving enemy aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicle and emerging cruise missile threats.

Homeland Defense

NASAMS is owned by eleven countries and has been integrated into the U.S. National Capital Region’s air defense system since 2005. In addition to the U.S., Norway, Finland, Spain, The Netherlands, Oman, Lithuania, Indonesia, Australia, Qatar and one undisclosed country have chosen to depend on NASAMS for homeland defense and the defense of critical assets.

Continually Upgraded Technology

In partnership with KONGSBERG Defence & Aerospace AS, we continuously integrate new capabilities into NASAMS. 

Built on a modular, distributed, open-hardware and software architecture, NASAMS is positioned to embrace new technologies, capabilities and features. As the NASAMS user community grows, continuous upgrades will provide the most technologically advanced and combat-ready system in the world.
