In a significant development aimed at enhancing Ukraine’s defense capabilities, the Ukrainian military is set to receive a cutting-edge counter-drone air defense system from Norway.

The CORTEX Typhon system, designed to safeguard against enemy combat unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), is poised to provide crucial protection amidst Russia’s escalating use of powerful loitering munitions. This partnership, facilitated through the International Fund for Ukraine, underscores the commitment of international allies to bolster Kyiv’s security in the face of mounting threats.

“This contract will provide a significant capability boost for the Armed Forces of Ukraine and will support their ability to protect their people and defend their country against aerial threats,” Kongsberg President Eirik Lie said in a press release statement.
