At the 15th Defense Services Asia (DSA) taking place from 18 - 21 April 2016 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Rohde & Schwarz will showcase its comprehensive portfolio of integrated communications and radio reconnaissance solutions.
The electronics group will introduce R&S NAVICS, a new, VoIP-based switching system for naval communications that offers innovative technology and a state-of-the-art, intuitive user interface. Another highlight will be a demonstration of the new Rohde & Schwarz ELINT solution for detecting, acquiring and analyzing radar signals. The system was specifically developed to meet intelligence requirements in difficult signal scenarios.
The integrated naval communications systems from Rohde & Schwarz offer an innovative design, user friendliness and outstanding cost efficiency. The new R&S NAVICS VoIP-based switching system will serve as a core component to deliver future-ready voice and data communications for all classes of ships. The system interconnects the onboard voice terminals and all other subsystems for internal and external communications via a uniform IP network. An intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) provides a modern and convenient means of operating the technically complex system. With R&S NAVICS, Rohde & Schwarz brings the advantages of IT technology to naval communications for the first time.
Another solution to be presented at DSA 2016 is the new Rohde & Schwarz ELINT system for detecting, acquiring and analyzing radar signals. The system was designed for easy operation and comprehensive functionality, with a focus on handling difficult scenarios such as those involving weak or LPI signals. The hardware and software were developed in parallel and tuned to each other to provide smooth operation, yielding a fully flexible and scalable system that can be used on a variety of platforms. A newly designed antenna system enables setups integrating acquisition, direction finding and communications antennas. The result is a compact, space-saving system that meets the challenges posed by modern signal scenarios, where overlaps between communications and radar intelligence applications are becoming increasingly common.
The proven Rohde & Schwarz COMINT/CESM solutions, which can be adapted to meet a broad range of requirements, round out the company’s radio reconnaissance portfolio. Rohde & Schwarz radio reconnaissance systems are deployed worldwide in mobile and stationary units on land as well as on naval and airborne platforms.
Rohde & Schwarz will present additional highlights from its extensive portfolio. The R&S SDTR software-defined tactical radio provides secure and reliable communications in tactical applications. Designed to meet the highest technological standards, the radio enables state-of-the-art command and control capabilities, operational flexibility and integrative communications across the various branches of the armed forces. Additionally, it delivers broadband voice and data communications when used in combination with the R&S HDR waveform family.
For secure aeronautical radiocommunications, Rohde & Schwarz will showcase its innovative R&S VCS-4G voice communications system for ground-based air traffic control as well as the proven R&S M3AR family of software defined radios for airborne platforms. The portfolio on display at DSA 2016 will be rounded out with T&M solutions and will also demonstrate the competency of Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity for IT and network security.
