Rohde & Schwarz is pleased to announce a contract award by Thales Canada for the delivery of secure communications systems for two new Joint Support Ships. Construction of the new Joint Support Ships is currently underway at Seaspan Vancouver Shipyards under the National Shipbuilding Strategy.

Once constructed, the Joint Support Ships will be purpose-built, multi-role vessels that will provide an important auxiliary function to the Royal Canadian Navy. In addition to replenishment at sea, the vessels will support training and naval maneuvers and humanitarian operations, ensuring Canada’s continued safety and security at home and abroad.

Some of the key factors that resulted in high technology group Rohde & Schwarz being awarded this contract include the independent company’s ability to engineer ship specific high frequency (HF) broadband antenna designs. In addition, the company is known for reliability and high performance, as proven on the many vessels they have installed external communications systems on, including the German Navy’s auxiliary support ships.

“We thank Thales for awarding us the contract to provide the external communications systems for JSS and for choosing to work with Rohde & Schwarz Canada,” says Hansjörg Herrbold, Vice President Market Segment Navy Rohde & Schwarz. “And we look forward to supporting Seaspan Shipyards to deliver on its commitments to the Royal Canadian Navy under the National Shipbuilding Strategy.”

Rohde & Schwarz Canada delivers full systems solutions and provides engineering and through life support to Canadian companies and is proud to support and generate jobs and economic benefits locally.
