The Protector RWS is the world's most fielded RWS with close to 20,000 units delivered to 20 nations around the globe. Switzerland has been a Protector RWS user for more than 10 years, and since first selecting it in 2007, Switzerland has procured additional RWS systems on several occasions. Switzerland has installed the RWS on a variety of platforms, including armored vehicles and patrol boats.

"Kongsberg is very proud to continue being a trusted partner with the Defence Forces in Switzerland. This new order along with the establishment of a Kongsberg Maintenance, Repair, Overhaul facility in Thun, Switzerland earlier this year further strengthens the strong relationship with Armasuisse", says Pål E. Bratlie, Executive Vice President Protech Systems, Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace AS.
