South Korean ammunition manufacturer CNO Tech on 14 November signed a technology transfer agreement with the Public Authority for Privatisation and Partnership (PAPP), which manages offset programmes in Oman.
Under the agreement, CNO Tech will transfer production-line technologies to the Oman Munition Production Company (OMPC), which was established with French company Manurhin in 2014 as an indigenous supplier to the Omani armed forces and security services.
CNO Tech products include military training ammunition such as a 40 mm practice grenade and 155 mm artillery training rounds, as well as non-lethal ammunition for police and homeland security forces.
OMPC manufactures NATO-standard 5.56 mm, 7.62 mm, and 9 mm calibre ammunition.
