Hansjörg Herrbold, VP market segment navy, Rohde & Schwarz, said: ‘We are very proud to be integrated in two major naval assets for Malaysia and honoured to be working with a great partner, Boustead Naval Shipyard. Providing a safe, future-ready investment for the Royal Malaysian Navy in time and on budget, NAVICS interconnects the onboard services – voice, message handling and C4I.’
