Cassidian delivers components for German SVFuA project

16th May 2012 - 12:48 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Cassidian has announced that it has delivered the first electronic components for the German Armed Forces’ new software-defined radio communications system (KommSysBw). The delivery paves the way for the overall integration of the system, according to a 11 May, 2012 company statement.

The communications system is part of the Interconnectable Joint-Services Radio Equipment project known as SVFuA. It is intended to optimise the force’s jam-resistant mobile voice and data communications in the coming decade, particularly in missions abroad.

According to the company, the SVFuA project is being developed by Hagenuk Marinekommunikation, TDS, Rohde & Schwarz, Telefunken Racoms and Cassidian, with each of them acting as an independent contractor.

For the programme Cassidian will develop a broadband transmit and receive module. Using the most up-to-date technologies, this module allows for secure data transmission with bit rates of up to 30 Mbits per second. Owing to its wide bandwidth, the broadband module is one of the most challenging elements of the new radio system, the company said. The high bandwidth enables the transmission of large volumes of data over long distances, while at the same time ensuring optimum resistance to jamming.
