Rohde & Schwarz was awarded a contract by Boeing to deliver radio communications for the T-7A Red Hawk.
Rohde & Schwarz has been awarded a contract by Boeing to deliver R&S MR6000R multiband-capable airborne transceivers from the SOVERON software defined radio family to be installed on the Red Hawk.
R&S MR6000R meets small size, lightweight and low power requirements, weighing less than four kilograms. It covers the frequency range from 30 MHz to 400 MHz and supports the NATO frequency algorithms HAVE QUICK II for interoperability and digital fast frequency hopping standard SATURN.
"This cooperation is the culmination of years of unwavering teamwork by Boeing and Rohde & Schwarz," says Michael Hostetter, Vice President, Boeing Defense & Space, Germany. "Along with updated technology and performance capabilities, the T-7A will be fitted with an enhanced radio communications suite, giving it an added benefit, preparing pilots for fifth-generation aircraft. We are looking forward to working with Rohde & Schwarz on this very important project, as well as future opportunities."
"We are proud to work with Boeing, having committed ourselves to delivering systems that meet the training needs of the U.S. Air Force," Frank Dunn, President and CEO, Rohde & Schwarz USA (and Canada), Inc., explains. "The airborne transceivers from the SOVERON radio family provide excellent RF characteristics suitable for applications in harsh military environments for all types of airborne platforms. As this is a software defined radio, we can adapt it for further training opportunities."
"Boeing's extended partnership with Rohde & Schwarz is testimony to how Boeing further integrates its global operations into Germany's aerospace fabric and partners across the Atlantic with German industry primes on cutting-edge aerospace programs," says Dr. Michael Haidinger, president, Boeing Germany, Central & Eastern Europe, BeNeLux & Nordics.
