Rohde & Schwarz has been awarded a contract to modernize Evenes Airport for the Royal Norwegian Air Force with highly secure radio communications solutions by the Norwegian Defence Materiel Agency (FMA).
Evenes Airport is being upgraded to become one of two Royal Norwegian Air Force (RNoAF) bases.
“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.”
Evenes Airport will also be an advanced operational base for RNAF F-35 fighters and P-8 maritime surveillance aircraft, with permanent NATO quick response alert contingency and periodic training activities.
Rohde & Schwarz will install new HF and V-/UHF radio systems for military air traffic control (ATC) and first deliveries are expected in 2021.
Rohde & Schwarz is a leading global provider of ATC solutions for civil and military applications.
The company 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.
