VHF/UHF transceiver family for airborne communications

The software defined, multiband-capable airborne transceivers in the R&S®M3AR family have a modular design and state-of-the-art technology for high MTBF values and a long life. The compact and lightweight transceivers offer high performance, making them suitable for operation in all types of aircraft, including unmanned aerial vehicles. Different waveforms are available, which can be installed at any time to provide interoperability in a variety of operational scenarios.

Features & benefits

Outstanding radio parameters

Excellent RF parameters

Despite its compact design, the R&S®M3AR radio family offers excellent RF characteristics, even under harsh environmental conditions. The R&S®M3AR transceivers are compatible with common military and civil communications standards.

Secure communications

EPM (ECCM) anti-jamming communications

Electronic protective measures (EPM) protect radio links from electronic countermeasures (ECM) such as jamming. Frequency hopping is an EPM (ECCM) method that is available as an option in all R&S®M3AR radios.
The NATO frequency hopping method HAVE QUICK I/II and the state-of-the-art SATURN method are integrated in the R&S®M3AR family in line with STANAG 4246 and STANAG 4372. These methods ensure jam-free radio links.

Flexible application range

High power for secure communications

High transmit power is especially important for helicopters because they need effective communications between multiple aircraft formations and when flying tactical missions low to the ground.

Flexible range of applications

Flexible range of applications

Low maintenance

Powerful built-in tests (BIT) for error detection and diagnostics

Three types of built-in tests (PBIT, CBIT and IBIT) help check device functionality and determine whether there are any errors and their type. BIT results can be viewed on the display or polled via the MIL-STD-1553B data bus.

Future-proof investment

Highly accelerated life testing (HALT)

Highly accelerated life testing (HALT) involves gradually increasing mechanical and thermal stress on the device under test (such as the R&S®M3AR transceiver). The applied stressors exceed normal ambient conditions expected over the life of the device under test to detect weaknesses in the electrical and mechanical design that would otherwise result in failures due to wear after a long operational life.
