The Norwegian Defence Materiel Agency (FMA) has awarded Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace a contract to develop THOR Remote Control Terminal (tRCT).


Secure communication through a new tactical radio system is an important part of the modernisation of combat-related IT for the Armed Forces, and a part of Program Mime. Secure communication for national security is a highlighted area of national strategic importance.



The contract value is NOK 255 million. The development is closely linked to the delivery of the THOR radio system. A contract for serial production is expected to follow. The Remote Control Terminal has a highly flexible architecture and capability to manage operator controls and high grade secure communications of several THOR combat net radios at once. The terminal will be designed for optimal use with the radio, but also equipped with interfaces to allow stand-alone high grade crypto solutions for other communications bearers like satellites, 5G, fixed infrastructure etc.



This contract secures the continuation of a specialized expertise in crypto and security solutions within Kongsberg, which has for many years been a trusted and certified supplier of crypto solutions developed in close cooperation with the Norwegian National Security Authority.
