The Norwegian Defence Materiel Agency awarded Rohde & Schwarz a contract to modernize Evenes Airport located in Nordland county, Norway with highly 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. One of the many innovations that will be installed are new HF and V-/UHF radio systems for military air traffic control (ATC). 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.”

With a unique range of key expertise in secure communications, the company says it can offer its customers customized, compatible, reliable systems from a single source. These characteristics enable the Rohde & Schwarz architecture to ensure future proof investment, simplify logistics and save costs over the entire lifecycle.
