Hanwha taps Kongsberg for C4 collaboration

Kongsberg has been selected as Hanwha’s C4 integration partner for the LAND 8116 Phase 1 project.

Kongsberg has been selected as Hanwha’s C4 integration partner for the LAND 8116 Phase 1 project.

Hanwha Defense Australia has tasked Kongsberg Defence Australia with supporting its command, control, communications, and computing (C4) integration program, as part of the Australian Defence Force’s LAND 8116 Phase 1 (Protected Mobile Fires) project.


According to Hanwha, Kongsberg was selected because it can provide the appropriate digital architecture and Fire Control System for its K9 and K10.

Specifically, Kongsberg will be responsible for integrating the Protected Mobile Fires capability into the ADF’s C4 Force Structure, including the integration of tactical communication systems and battle management systems.

The firm has also been tasked with transferring hardware and software technology to Kongsberg Defence Australia to execute and support the Australian Protected Mobile Fires program.

Hanwha Defense Australia is currently planning to develop a new manufacturing facility in the Greater Geelong area in Victoria to produce its K10 (Huntsman) artillery systems and the armoured resupply vehicles.

Kongsberg is also expected to establish a local software support and test environment that will be used to support LAND 8116 and other programs in Australia and the region.
