Denmark has received all its Precise and Universal Launching System (PULS) multiple rocket launchers (MRLs) and its first batch of 155 mm/52 calibre Autonomous Truck Mounted Howitzer Systems (ATMOS), Janes learnt at Defence iQ's Future Artillery 2024 conference held in Paris from 21 to 23 May.

Most of the PULS munitions ordered by Denmark have also been delivered. The arrival of the first batch of ATMOS allows training to begin on one of the systems delivered.

A spokesperson for the Danish Ministry of Defence's (MoD's) Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organisation (DALO) told Janes in March that 19 ATMOS were scheduled to be delivered from the first to the fourth quarter of 2024 and eight PULSs from the second quarter of 2023 to the first quarter of 2024, with a full operating capability planned for 2025. In addition to a missile package, the PULS procurement includes command post and supply vehicles.

Elbit Systems tweeted in August 2023 that Denmark had received its first ATMOS and PULS. The tweet included a video of one ATMOS on an 8×8 platform and two PULSs on 6×6 platforms being delivered to a Danish port.

Elbit announced on 2 March that it had awarded two contracts worth a total of USD252 million to a European NATO country: a USD119 million contract for a battalion's worth of the ATMOS self-propelled howitzers (SPHs) over a two-year period and a USD133 million contract for two batteries' worth of PULS MRLs, plus rockets and missiles, over a three-year period. The procurement includes training, spare parts, and tools for both systems.
