NAVICS from Rohde & Schwarz to support interoperability within GCC

Munich, November 3, 2021 — Rohde & Schwarz Emirates has recently received a contract to deliver external and internal communications systems for new corvettes of a Gulf navy.

Rohde & Schwarz Emirates will provide the ships with NAVICS, the innovative, high-quality and reliable naval integrated communications system, in addition to the external line-of-sight (VHF/UHF) and beyond-line-of-sight (HF) communications solutions it has already provided.

“We are very proud to have been selected by this Gulf navy for their very important national asset,” Ernest Joseph Yasso, Vice President Military and Government Solutions, Rohde & Schwarz Middle East and Africa, explains. “Rohde & Schwarz, a long-term partner of the Gulf navies, is working toward a common basis and interoperability within the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) by providing communications solutions, training and service level agreements. We provide invaluable support to achieve seamless communications interoperability within each state as well as across the GCC. We also make sure that we deliver a safe, future-ready investment for our naval customers on time and on budget.”

In addition to external communications, NAVICS provides onboard communications and ensures a multilevel security architecture that allows secure, trusted and tamper-proof communications, i.e. third parties will not be able to interfere with information exchange.

Rohde & Schwarz meets challenging operational requirements by providing outstanding reliability that enables customers to maintain information superiority in any scenario. All Rohde & Schwarz equipment is in line with the relevant MIL-STDs for naval applications and mission-proven by more than 40 navies.
