Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace (Kongsberg, Norway) developed this common tactical operations centre (CTOC) that can be used in a variety of roles, including battalion operations centre (BOC), ground-based air-defence (GBAD) operations centre, AN/TSQ-73 air-defence artillery command-and-control system replacement or a GBAD fire distribution centre (FDC).
CTOC, based on work performed for a variety of air-defence battle management C4I programmes that Kongsberg is involved in for Greece, Norway, Spain, Turkey, the US Army and US Marine Corps, is to be the core of NASAMS II. That is the elaborate mid-life modernisation of the Norwegian advanced surface-to-air missile system (NASAMS) that Kongsberg - in partnership with Raytheon - supplied to the Royal Norwegian Air Force (RNoAF) in the early 1990s.
The Norwegian Army bought 240 GD to replace Voolvo and Land Rover jeeps in the mid-1980s, and 300 GD to use as ambulances. The 300GD is also used to transport the launch control station and optical sensors for the NASAMS Air-defense system. During the 90's 290 GD's where bought, and in the first half of the 00's a small number of armoured 270 CDI's were put into service. Today the Defence Forces operates a total of 3000 vehicles.
The escort company of the Norwegian Royal Guard employs a black G500 AMG with police lights on the roof.
