The NSM pairs a dual-ban imaging IR seeker with embedded autonomous target recognition.
(Raytheon)

sea-skimming anti-ship missile able to
penetrate shipboard defenses, and operate effectively in both blue water and
littoral environments. Capable of ranges
up to 200 km, the system combines a
GPS-aided multi-sensor navigation suite
with a scanning, wide field-of-view du-

al-band imaging infrared seeker (IIR);
autonomous target recognition (ATR) is
used to discriminate targets in the terminal phase.
Kongsberg has been marketing NSM
into the USN for several years, and completed a live firing from USS Coronado

(LCS-4) in September 2014 under the Foreign Comparative Test (FCT) program. Its
campaign gathered new momentum in
April 2015, when the company signed a
teaming arrangement with Raytheon to
address US and international opportunities for NSM. This has now been followed
up by agreement to qualify a second NSM
production line in the United States.
Raytheon and Kongsberg highlight
NSM's pairing of the dual-band IIR seeker
with embedded ATR. As well as offering
improved defensive penetration (approaching at low altitude and remaining
totally passive) and high immunity to
countermeasures, the ability of the missile to perform "facial recognition" and
precise aimpoint selection in congested
littoral environments is seen as a key
discriminator. Kongsberg further claims
that its modelling has demonstrated
all-weather performance comparable to
that of an active radar seeker.
Growth options already on the NSM
development roadmap include a second
seeker channel and the integration of a
datalink. In the former case, Kongsberg
is working with BAE System Austra-
