Dicom joint venture established
Rohde & Schwarz and Mesit have announced the establishment of a new joint venture (JV) with Mesit as the majority shareholder.
Named Dicom, the JV will enable the further enhancement of the SOVERON communications system. The lightweight handheld software-defined radio with networking and multiband capability in the UHF/VHF frequency range is designed to bring fully integrated, high-performance and scalable trusted communications solutions for all branches of the armed forces.
Dicom has commercial operations in Uherské Hradiště in the Czech Republic.
Pavel Salanda, managing director, DICOM, said: ‘We are delighted with this joint investment. The creation of Dicom allows both partner companies to accelerate the development and production of the SOVERON portfolio of products.
‘With this JV, the Czech Republic becomes the fourth country in the world where Rohde & Schwarz has full presence in sales, service (Prague), manufacturing (Vimperk) and R&D (Uherské Hradiště).’
