With the theme “Trusted – Trendsetting – Sustainable”, Rohde & Schwarz will present the complete CERTIUM® portfolio and further innovative solutions at Airspace World 2023 at the Palexpo Exhibition Centre in Geneva, Switzerland, booth E13, from March 8 to 10. This includes:

CERTIUM®, the Rohde & Schwarz advanced air traffic control (ATC) communications suite from the microphone to the antenna, backed by extensive expertise in providing turnkey solutions and setting market standards.

The complete portfolio of CERTIUM® RADIOS includes the R&S®Series5200 radio that features an innovative security-by-design architecture, a cost-efficient maintenance concept and outstanding RF performance. The radio covers the entire ATC range from VHF to UHF.

The R&S®EVSD1000 also analyzes ATC communications signals.
