The Norwegian Defence Materiel Agency (FMA) has been awarded a contract with Rohde & Schwarz to modernize the Evenes Airport to include highly secure communications solutions.
The airport is being upgraded to become one of two Royal Norwegian Air Force (RNoAF) bases with an advanced operational base for F-35 fighter and P-8 maritime surveillance aircraft, including permanent NATO quick response alert contingency and periodic training activities.
One of the many innovations that will be installed are new HF and V-/UHF radio systems for military air-traffic control (ATC) by Rohde & Schwarz. First deliveries are expected sometime this year.
“Rohde & Schwarz is proud to deploy our latest ATC communications technology in Norwegian airspace and support our armed forces with these solutions,” said Ove Ladegård, CEO Rohde & Schwarz Norge AS. “It is our aim to provide RNoAF with the best solution that allows the customer to continue their operations safely and reliably while preparing to meet future challenges.”
Rohde & Schwarz is a global provider of ATC solutions for civil and military applications. With a unique range of key expertise in secure communications, the company can offer its customers customized, compatible, reliable systems from a single source. These characteristics enable the Rohde & Schwarz’s architecture to ensure a future-proof investment, simplifying logistics and saving costs over the entire lifecycle.
