On 4 February Rohde & Schwarz announced the establishment of R&S Marinesysteme GmbH, headquartered in Kiel. The company will lie at the heart of R&S’ continued development and exploitation of solutions for communications management and reliable communications intelligence and radar intelligence on board naval vessels.
The newly founded company complements the expertise of the parent group in the national and international naval environment. The corporate group is investing in the Kiel location in order to provide even better support for the German navy and naval industry in current and future projects, in close collaboration with the Hamburg location. Dr Dirk Galda and Benjamin Marpe have been appointed managing directors of the new company.
R&S Marinesysteme GmbH creates the technical prerequisites for secure communications and makes a valuable contribution to situational awareness. One focus is on the implementation of information transmission systems used to manage and monitor the entire communications traffic and takes critical cybersecurity requirements into account.
R&S Marinesysteme meets this need by offering solutions for the detection and analysis of communications and radar signals. This can also help improve tactical situational awareness and protect the platform.
“R&S Marinesysteme can rely on the Rohde & Schwarz group's many years of experience in the navy business," observes Managing Director Dirk Galda. "We are pleased to be able to now provide even more specific support for our customers, with innovative software solutions for communications and for communications intelligence and radar intelligence on board naval vessels," added his colleague Benjamin Marpe.
