Rohde & Schwarz has delivered new communication suites for two Royal Malaysian Navy frigates, the company announced on 15 November.

The NAVICS IP integrated communications system has been installed on the navy’s two Lekiu-class frigates, along with M3SR-series software-defined radios. The new equipment has been integrated to interface with present onboard systems, including a data link, message handling, public address and ship telephone system.

Rohde & Schwarz carried out the work under a contract with Boustead Naval Shipyard.

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.’
