Rohde & Schwarz wins SVFuA contract
Rohde & Schwarz has won a contract from the German Federal Ministry of Defense to equip German armed forces command vehicles with the joint radio system known as SVFuA, the company announced on 11 July.
The SVFuA is a software defined radio (SDR) that provides communications up to the classification level SECRET.
The radio has been certified in line with the internationally recognized Software Communications Architecture (SCA) standard for SDR radio systems making it possible to port current and future national and international waveforms onto the radio system as long as these waveforms also meet the requirements set out in the SCA standard. It can also interface with allies during joint missions.
The radios have been ordered as part of Germany's Mobile Tactical Communications programme - known as MoTaKo - to digitise tactical communications.
This first instalment will be delivered by 2020. The contract’s framework agreement allows the German armed forces to order additional SVFuA systems within a seven-year timeframe.
