Rohde & Schwarz will equip the German Navy’s NH90 Multi-Function Frigate Helicopter (MRFH), with SOVERON household airborne radios that embrace embedded COMSEC. Every plane is fitted with three VHF/UHF transceivers plus spares. The German Navy navy will obtain 31 helicopters – a naval model of the NH90 – that supply close-range safety, ASuW and ASW, transport, and search and rescue capabilities. The transceiver’s interfaces enable exterior units or an exterior encryption system to be related and guards the naval misery frequency, thereby remaining future-proof. The SOVERON household airborne transceiver makes use of state-of-the-art communications algorithms that have been standardized all through NATO, and notably for naval purposes.

“We’re very proud to have our tools deployed on this main naval asset of our nationwide buyer,” says Stefan Pleyer, Vice President Market Section Avionics, Rohde & Schwarz. “With 8000+ SOVERON household airborne radios in use worldwide on over 70 totally different airborne platforms, we make sure that we ship a protected, future-ready funding for immediately’s navies on time and on finances.”

The NHIndustries NH90 is a medium-sized, twin-engine, multi-role navy helicopter. It was developed in response to NATO necessities for a battlefield helicopter which might even be able to being operated in naval environments. The NH90 was developed and is manufactured by NHIndustries, a collaborative firm owned by Airbus Helicopters, Leonardo (previously AgustaWestland) and Fokker Aerostructures. The first function of the NFH model is autonomous anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and anti-surface unit warfare (ASuW), primarily from naval ships. These plane are geared up for day and night time, adversarial climate and extreme ship movement operations.

Rohde&Schwarz gives state-of-the-art wideband waveforms to realize data superiority. Functions vary from pure voice to high-speed tactical information protecting all airborne platform eventualities. The waveforms allow dependable and safe communications in a fast-moving, harsh atmosphere. Quick frequency hopping, superior encryption applied sciences, simultaneous voice and information transmission and embedded cell ad-hoc networking (MANET) functionality are just some examples of superior expertise. Custom-made nationwide information hyperlink options Primarily based on the internationally accepted SCA commonplace, the strict separation between radio platform and waveform utility permits procurement authorities to completely modify this a part of the radio consistent with nationwide necessities. Creating an indigenous nationwide waveform, together with the crypto algorithm, offers authorities true independence.
