Reutech Radar Systems has successfully completed the final qualification review (FQR) of 210N X-band air / sea surveillance radar for the Royal Norwegian Navy.

The review has cleared the RSR 210N radars for operational standing aboard the Aegis-equipped Fridtjof Nansen Class frigates.

According to Aerospace and Defense News, in 2007 the Norwegian Defence Logistics Organisation (NDLO) contracted Electronicon AS, the prime contractor, to supply five RSR 210N X-band air / sea surveillance radars.

The navy has already installed the RSR 210N radars on the KNM Otto Sverdrup, KNM Roald Amundsen and KNM Fridtjof Nansen frigates.

The remaining radars are expected to be delivered by early 2012.
