Etterretningstjenesten (E-tjenesten) or the Norwegian Intelligence Service (NIS) is a Norwegian military intelligence agency under the Chief of Defence and the Ministry of Defence.

The service has operated, or still operates, the following stations, all of them located north of the Arctic Circle:

Kirkenes, Vardø, and Vadsø are close to the Russian border near Severomorsk in the Murmansk district on the Kola Peninsula, the home of the former Soviet Northern Fleet and now its Russian equivalent.

In 1995, the Ministry of Defence confirmed that the Intelligence Service had operated a stay-behind service in cooperation with the CIA and MI6 since the end of World War II.

The agency uses at least one ELINT ship—F/S Marjata.
