Comrod Communication AS, is a Norwegian public limited company with its headquarters at Tau in south-western Norway and offices elsewhere in Norway and in France. The company was founded in 1948, and is today one of the leading producers and distributors of antennas and antenna systems for both marine and defence use.

For more than 50 years, Comrod has combined service, know-how and experience to achieve optimal development and production of antennas and antenna systems. All activities take place in-house, from the design and development phases to the final product. Comrod antennas are synonymous with good and reliable communication at any latitude.

Power Supplies & Battery Chargers

The power division of Comrod AS is specialized in the development and manufacturing of power supplies and battery chargers for demanding military applications. The Company has a range of standard military power supplies and battery chargers, AC/DC and DC/DC converters, and also provides bespoken products, products that are made according to specifications from its customers. The products are very often used for C4 applications in mobile platforms, and its AC/DC converters are power factor corrected, PFC, for optimum adaptation to weak power sources such as portable generators.

The Company utilises the very latest technology, but at the same time bases its designs on components that have proven their reliability in actual operation, and have performed a considerable number of demanding projects.

Comrod delivers antennas for tactical applications, consisting of handheld, manpack, vehicle, base station and shipboard antennas. The line includes combined antennas for VHF/GPS, VHF/DECT,   VHF/W-LAN, UHF/GPS, UHF/DECT and UHF/W-LAN. All antennas have been through full military testing for different programmes around the globe.

Comrod also delivers antenna systems for both vehicle and boat installations. The system is primarily designed to reduce the number of antennas on a single installation, and allows the simultaneous use of several radios to one transmit antenna, or to individual directional antennas. A receiver distribution amplifier is included to allow simultaneous reception on all receivers.


The selection of a marine antenna must be made with great care, because even the best radio or radio system is worthless with a defective antenna.

Vessels, from the deep sea fleet to fishing boats, workboats and pleasure craft benefit from our high quality products.
