Military air traffic control for international cooperation

Military air traffic control

Mission control communications solution from the operations center to the individual aircraft

The increasing volume of air traffic presents civil air traffic control with considerable challenges. Air defense requirements are even greater. Higher demands are placed on the safety and protection, robustness and interoperability of the systems in use.

The specific demands on military air traffic control include international cooperation during peacekeeping and humanitarian missions. Comprehensive interoperability is internal, joint and multinational – from the operations center to each individual aircraft. A multitude of different airborne platforms have to be supported. A fundamental prerequisite for this interoperability is the use of flexible, software based structures. Rohde & Schwarz is a leading global provider of solutions for:

  • Stationary and mobile ground to air communications
  • Secure transmission of information
  • T&M equipment for radiocommunications
Military air traffic control

With this unique range of key competencies, Rohde & Schwarz can offer its customers tailored, compatible and reliable mission control communications solutions from a single source. Thanks to these properties, Rohde & Schwarz's software-based design ensures future security, simplifies logistics and saves costs over the entire life cycle.

Military air traffic control must be even more flexible and robust to accommodate the constantly changing missions. Thanks to their scalable and secure system architecture, voice communications systems (VCS) such as the R&S®M4ACS meet special military air traffic control requirements. The fully redundant architecture offers higher reliability and failsafety than any other conventional system. Modern software defined radios such as the R&S®M3SR HF/VHF/UHF radio family with embedded electronic protective measures (EPM/ECCM) secure communications links to high value air assets against interception and intrusion.
