The National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System NASAMS is a medium to long-range air defence missile system—which should prove effective against Russian drones and missiles.


This article by Joshua Keating, writing for Grid News, makes the following points:
  • NASAMS was designed and developed by the Norwegian defence and aerospace company Kongsberg.
  • Ukraine is getting the same systems that guard Washington from aerial attacks.
  • NASAMS have been deployed at strategic locations around the US capital since 2005.
  • The US has provided two of these systems to Ukraine already, with six more on the way.
  • Australia acquired the NASAMS system in June 2022.
