Norwegian defense company Kongsberg announced the launch of the NOMADS anti-aircraft missile system on the market. According to German media, Berlin is considering the possibility of providing this highly mobile short-range air defense system to the Armed Forces.

The German government is considering the transfer of new NOMADS air defense systems to Ukraine. The anti-aircraft missile complex was presented by the Norwegian weapons manufacturer Kongsberg, which is known for its NASAMS air defense system.

It was presented at the Eurosatory international arms exhibition in Paris.

The system consists of a SHORAD (Short Range Air Defense) module installed on an armored vehicle with high cross-country ability. SHORAD combines the key command and control functions and applications of the NASAMS medium-range system and includes a passive search missile and an AESA radar.

In total, the Norwegian Armed Forces will receive six vehicles, four of which have already been delivered. At the end of May, the NOMADS system successfully passed combat tests, during which two missiles were fired.
