Rohde & Schwarz will equip the German Navy’s NH90 Multi-Role Frigate Helicopter (MRFH) with the SOVERON family of airborne radios that include embedded COMSEC, the company writes in a press release. Each aircraft is to be fitted with three VHF/UHF transceivers plus spares.
The Navy will receive 31 of these naval variants of the NH90 helicopter for applications including:
- close-range protection
- Search & Rescue missions
According to Rohde & Schwarz, the SOVERON family airborne transceiver uses communication algorithms that have been standardised throughout NATO, particularly for naval applications. The transceiver’s interfaces allow external devices or an external encryption device to be connected and guards the naval distress frequency.
