R&S to deliver new radios for Evenes airbase

The Norwegian Defence Materiel Agency (FMA) has awarded Rohde & Schwarz a contract to modernise Evenes Airport with secure communications solutions.

Evenes Airport is being upgraded to become one of two Royal Norwegian Air Force (RNoAF) bases and an advanced operational base for F-35 fighter and P-8 maritime surveillance aircraft, with permanent NATO quick response alert contingency and periodic training activities.

The upgrade will see the installation of new HF, VHF and UHF radio systems for military air traffic control (ATC) by Rohde & Schwarz. First deliveries are expected in 2021.

“Rohde & Schwarz is proud to deploy our latest ATC communications technology in Norwegian airspace and support our armed forces with these solutions,” Ove Ladegård, CEO Rohde & Schwarz Norge AS, said.

“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.”
