The Royal Malaysian Navy’s Lekiu-class frigates, KD Jebat and KD Lekiu, are the most modern surface ships of the service, serving in the 23 Frigate Squadron. To ensure seamless connectivity and support the mission, Rohde & Schwarz has delivered and commissioned its NAVICS IP integrated communications system (ICS) into the Lekiu-class frigates of the Royal Malaysian Navy. Working for a contract with Boustead Naval Shipyard Sdn Bhd (part of Boustead Heavy Industries Corporation Bhd - BHIC), the independent company completed the project on budget and three months ahead of time.

Having upgraded the vessels with NAVICS, and modern software defined radios of R&S M3SR (Series4100 HF, Series4400 VHF/UHF), Rohde & Schwarz also integrates and interfaces with present third party systems on board such as Datalink, message handling, public address and ship telephone system.

“We are very proud to be integrated in two major naval assets for Malaysia and honored to be working with a great partner, Boustead Naval Shipyard,” Hansjörg Herrbold, Vice President Market Segment Navy Rohde & Schwarz, says. “Providing a safe, future-ready investment for the Royal Malaysian Navy in time and on budget, NAVICS interconnects the onboard services – voice, message handling and C4I.”

Rohde & Schwarz has provided more than 40 navies with state-of-the-art communications technology, and in the last fiscal year, contracted 14 additional platforms with NAVICS integrated naval communications systems. NAVICS references includes the Royal Navy’s Type 26 Global Combat Ship (GCS).
