Royal Norwegian Air Force Falcon DA20 ECM

The Royal Norwegian Air Force operates a small fleet of Falcon DA20ECM aircraft in the electronic warfare role. Built in France as the Dassault Falcon 200 and originally designed as a business jet, the type soon found use with military forces and was modified to undertake maritime surveillance, electronic warfare and other roles.

The DA20 is operated by 717 Squadron at Gardermoen Air Base and crews are trained to disrupt enemy electromagnetic signals and collect electronic intelligence. One of the aircraft is configured as a transport aircraft for military personnel, with a capacity for carrying eight passengers over 1,600 nautical miles.
