Rohde & Schwarz (R&S) will provide an integrated communications system for two 94m multi-role response vessels (MRRVs) for the Philippine Coast Guard.

R&S will supply the IP-based NAVICS system under a contract with NTT Communications, announced on 10 September.

NAVICS will provide secure communications and direction finding systems for the MRRVs, which are being built by Mitsubishi Shipbuilding in Japan for delivery in 2022.

Features of the integrated communications system include compact Wi-Fi voice terminals, the R&S Postman message-handling solution and Map Track, a blue force tracking functionality.

The new MRRVs are financed by the Japanese government under Phase II of the Maritime Safety Capability Improvement Project.
