The contract, which was signed at the Defence Services Asia 2018 (DSA 2018) exhibition in Kuala Lumpur, is a follow-on to the agreement announced 9 April 2015 for NSM shipboard equipment, said the company in a statement, adding that the medium-range NSMs would be deck-mounted and integrated to the SETIS combat management system provided by France’s Naval Group.
