Norway has added another €12.5 million in funding to its €23.2 million Eurofighter industrial agreement, which provides local defense companies with access and high-technology work connected with the four-nation fighter jet.  The Eurofighter consortium is wooing the Norwegian air force for an order, as an F-16 replacement. Beneficiaries of the agreement include radar house Ericsson and software company EPM Technology. The latter has just signed a €1.7 million deal to develop 3-D archiving application software, having earlier supplied a data management system to the Eurofighter project.

Eurofighter said it has offered a further six contracts to Norway, which would bring the total value of what might be described as “pre-offset” work to 300 million Norwegian kroner ($46 million). “Any decision by Norway to purchase Eurofighter would attract further contracts…possibly up to 100 percent of the purchase value, currently estimated at between 25 and 40 billion kroner [$4 to $6 billion],” the consortium said.
