Rohde & Schwarz to Equip German Navy's NH90 MRFH With Secure Communications

  • The new NH90 Multi-Role Frigate Helicopter (MRFH) for the German Navy will be flying with Rohde & Schwarz software defined airborne radios.

Rohde & Schwarz will equip the German Navy's NH90 Multi-Role Frigate Helicopter (MRFH), with SOVERON family airborne radios that include embedded COMSEC. Each aircraft is fitted with three VHF/UHF transceivers plus spares.

The navy will receive 31 helicopters – a naval version of the NH90 – that offer close-range protection, ASuW and ASW, transport, and search and rescue capabilities.

The SOVERON family airborne transceiver uses state-of-the-art communications algorithms that were standardized throughout NATO, and 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, thereby remaining future-proof.
