New HF and V/UHF ATC Radios
Rohde & Schwarz has received an order from the Norwegian Defence Materiel Agency (FMA) to deliver modern, highly secure communications solutions for Evenes Airport.
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. Among the many innovations to be installed are new HF and V/UHF radio systems for military air traffic control (ATC), deliveries of which will commence this year.
“It is our aim to provide [the] RNoAF with the best solution, that allows the customer to continue their operations safely and reliably, while preparing to meet future challenges,” commented Ove Ladegård, CEO of Rohde & Schwarz Norge AS.
