The Italian Coast Guard has put its trust in Rohde & Schwarz for decades. This collaboration continues with the coast guard's new self-righting and unsinkable patrol boat, the CP420 "Natale De Grazia," which was launched in December. This new vessel, built by Intermarine, will expand the operating capabilities of the fleet and will ship out with Rohde & Schwarz SOVERON communications.

The Italian Coast Guard is a military organization, appointed for several of the coast guard functions defined by the European Union, such as, e.g., search and rescue, fishing control and maritime traffic monitoring. R&S M3SR Series4100 high frequency (HF) radios enable authorities to patrol these large coastal areas and will allow the ship's crew to effectively exchange information with the shore and other vessels, as well as joint forces and governmental authorities. The HF radios from Rohde & Schwarz also provide a security architecture that allows secure voice communications, i.e. third parties will not be able to intercept the information exchange.

"In civil and military missions, all parties need to be able to communicate efficiently and reliably to save lives," says Mario Zaccagnini, Managing Director of Rohde & Schwarz Italy. "We are very proud to be the Italian Coast Guard's partner of choice and will continue to provide full support now and in the future."

Rohde & Schwarz meets challenging design and integration requirements and provides outstanding support, enabling naval yards to achieve high-quality results and meet delivery times. All Rohde & Schwarz equipment complies with the relevant MIL-STDs for naval applications and is trusted by more than 40 navies.
