At the forefront of the naval communications sector, Rohde & Schwarz (R&S) offers its fully-integrated communication system, NAVICS, for surface vessel and submarine requirements – having established particular success for the latter category.
Effective submarine communications are a key ingredient in the recipe for strategic information superiority. R&S provides graceful solutions for such requirements, mastering the most critical aspect of underwater communications – connecting the submarine with surface vessels, shore stations and airborne platforms, including line of sight (LOS) and beyond line of sight (BLOS) communications.
NAVICS is an operationally-proven, secure and fully IP-based communications system that ensures reliable and secure information exchange and brings the advantages of modern IT technology to today's vessels. A multilevel security architecture allows secure, trusted and tamper-proof communications between multiple domains of differing security classifications. To date, the company has equipped Type 214, Type 212 and Type 209 submarines and other submerged platforms with its communication solutions, in more than 40 navies.
“The Rohde & Schwarz equipment provides advanced performance and reliability as well as long-term spare-part supply,” comments Hansjörg Herrbold, Vice President Market Segment Navy at Rohde & Schwarz. “Our integrated IP-based communications systems solution is smaller and lighter than TDM-based systems, thus saving space, power and weight. Our advanced wireless communications solution provides communications whilst on-the-move.”
The comprehensive range of solutions on offer ensures high connectivity and secure and interoperable LOS and BLOS communications for all naval platforms, under, on or above the water or on land. Rohde & Schwarz meets challenging naval requirements by providing outstanding reliability, enabling customers to maintain information superiority in any scenario.
