Royal Norwegian Navy frigate KNM Otto Sverdrup has been equipped with Reutech's RSR 210N air / sea surveillance radar.

The RSR 210N is a highly accurate multipurpose 2D radar that is capable of general surveillance, ship self defence, gun fire support and helicopter support roles.

The system's lightweight two-axis stabilised antenna is designed to perform efficiently under harsh environmental conditions, such as in Arctic theatres of operation.

The system is designed for the Royal Norwegian Navy Fridtjof Nansen Class frigate requirements and aids the primary purpose of helicopter control operations in a multitarget environment.

Production and testing of the remaining four systems is in progress.

Reutech was awarded a contract to manufacture five advanced helicopter control radars in December 2007.
