  • Norway Italy Reprogramming Lab Formally Accepted
  • Congratulations to our partners Norway and Italy! On September 22, the Norway Italy Reprogramming Lab (NIRL) was formally accepted at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida. The NIRL provides Norway and Italy with F-35 mission data files to assess what threats to search for and when, and enables the 5th generation fighter to decipher and control the battlespace. The Defense Contract Management Agency's authorization marks a major milestone in the development and testing of sovereign mission data for the two countries and signals the beginning of a new phase in training and planned modernization work.
