Rohde & Schwarz Seals Deal for Secure Communications Contract for Asian Army

MUNICH/KUALA LUMPUR: German telecommunications company, Rohde & Schwarz has been awarded a contract to supply an undisclosed Asian army with the company’s SOVERON tactical vehicular communications systems.

Under this extension contract, the company will deliver SOVERON VR, which is optimised for use in vehicular applications and meets stringent requirements for vibration and size, weight and power consumption (SWaP). The vehicular software defined radios are fully interoperable with existing tactical communications systems and will enter service after being installed in vehicles by local industry.

“It is an honour to be an integral part of this Asian army’s digital growth roadmap,” explains Rohde & Schwarz’s Vice President Secure Communications, Hansjörg Herrbold. “With our innovative overall approach – SOVERON – we provide trusted national solutions that can be tailored to the customer’s needs. Thanks to the solutions’ open architecture, they are both compatible with legacy radio systems and architectures, and also provide future growth potential through simultaneous voice and data transmission.”

SOVERON VR is an operationally proven and successful communications solution with multiband capability in the VHF/UHF frequency range from 30 MHz to 512 MHz. The ruggedized hardware meets applicable MIL-STD environmental and EMC requirements, allowing the radio to be used under extreme conditions such as in armoured wheeled vehicles and tracked vehicles. The SOVERON WAVE embedded waveform suite provides increased situational awareness through adaptive high bandwidth IP networking. Mobile ad hoc networking enables continuously stable communications within agile networks. –rohde/adj/aaa (Image: Rohde & Schwarz)
