For many years, Rohde & Schwarz has been a supplier of airborne transceivers to Airbus Helicopters, which deploys them on many of its platforms.
The software-defined radios from the Munich-based secure communications specialist, which meet the highest security standards, allow networking and ensure interoperability between all branches of the armed forces and allied countries. Nearly 8,000 software-defined radios from the R&S M3AR family of airborne transceivers are in use worldwide on more than 70 different airborne platforms.
The latest generation of Rohde & Schwarz R&S SDAR airborne radios, dedicated to avionics communication systems, are equipped with high speed secure communications capabilities. It aims to simplify integration and help reduce system congestion and aircraft weight.
The independent European company Rohde & Schwarz is the only supplier of airborne military radio that meets the civil certification standards of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
