15th June 2020 - 09:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Rohde & Schwarz has been chosen by Babcock Australasia to supply R&S M3SR Series4100 HF radios and high-power amplifiers with HF wideband capabilities to the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF).

The contract will support the fulfilment of the Fixed High Frequency Radio Refresh (FHFRR) project which the New Zealand MoD recently awarded to Babcock Australasia. The new radios are expected to be fully operational by August 2023.

Hansjörg Herrbold, VP Market Segment Navy at Rohde & Schwarz, said: ‘Since HF wideband technology drives the need for high-power systems, the company is now offering 5kW and 10kW amplifiers backed by decades of experience in the transmitter business. We will fully support Babcock Australasia in implementing and operating this modern communications solution.’

The R&S M3SR Series4100 HF radio is part of the company’s Soveron family and is a versatile software-defined radio with HF wideband functionality.
