The Nachrichenregiment 14 (NR-14) „Harro Schulze-Boysen“ was a signal regiment-sized unit of the National People's Army (NVA) Air Forces of the National People's Army of the former East Germany (GDR). The primary task of that unit consisted in the signal support to the Air Force Command (Kdo LSK/LV) as well as of the Main Operation Centre (MOC), the so-called ZGS LSK/LV.
Note: In German language the wording Nachrichtenregiment might be ambiguous or misleading and could be mixed up even with intelligence/ signal intelligence. However, this regiment was unequivocal a primary signal unit. In order to avoid misunderstanding and according to NATO terminology signal typical terms will be chosen as far as possible.
After interim steps in 1960 this battalion was gown up to the Signal Regiment 19 (NR-19), a regiment-sized unit. In 1967 the name of honour Harro Schulze-Boysen was dedicated to this particular signal regiment. Subsequent to restructuring in 1970 the unit received finally the designation Nachrichtenregiment 14 (NR-14), Harro Schulze-Boysen.
The NR-14 was direct supported to the NVA Air Force Command (Kdo LSK/LV) with the organization structure as follows:
- Signal battalion HQ Kdo LSK/LV (stationary)
- Signal battalion MOC Kdo LSK/LV (stationary)
- Training battalion communications and Air Traffic Control

Organization after disbandment of the NVA
With the disbandment of the NVA in 1990 the stationary HF transmitter site (Limsdorf) was long-lasting integrated into the organization structure of the German Air Force (GAF). Also some handheld equipment and the so-called aeronautical radio equipment east were integrated to the equipment pool Deployable Air Situation Display and Interface Processor System (DASDIPS).
After that the NR-14, meanwhile Fernmeldeabteilung 14 (FmAbt-14), was disbanded April 1, 1993. The Bundswehr site Waldsieversdorf (Rotes Luch) was given up as well.
The in-service support management for DASDIPS equipment, in operation at present, is with GAF Weapon Systems Command. The operational responsibility to DASDIPS is with the German Air Force Command.
