Communications solutions for Airforce

Airborne communications by Rohde & Schwarz

Today’s military missions are typically based on joint and combined missions in a multinational environment. In the digital era, information superiority is taking on a new, expanded meaning. The ability to store, share and interpret a large number of data sets on the digital battlefield calls for sustainable solutions to effectively protect this data in information spaces.

SOVERON® stands for more than fully integrated, high performance and scalable trusted communications solutions. SOVERON® enables customers’ digital sovereignty and gives them the greatest possible independence from manufacturers.

SOVERON® – the five pillars of true independence

True independence and digital sovereignty

Civil and military standards

Since airspace worldwide is used largely for civil purposes, military aircraft must also meet civil standards in order to pass this airspace without restrictions. The SOVERON® product family is the only military software defined airborne radio family on the market that also meets civil safety avionic standards, providing full independence for unrestricted joint civil-military operations. As part of the family, these software defined radios have excellent characteristics that make them suitable for applications in military and civil environments including all types of airborne platforms, such as helicopters, transport aircraft, jets and unmanned aerial vehicles.

Designed for ease of integration

An essential part of the airborne radio development process is the continual and intensive exchange of expertise with industrial partners to eliminate platform integration risks. Like no other radios, the SOVERON® product family was designed to ease the integration effort. It goes without saying that the software defined radios of the SOVERON® family have been qualified in accordance with MIL-STD-704, MIL-STD-810 and MIL-STD-461 to minimize additional platform-specific qualification

Customized national data link solutions

The strict separation between a radio platform and a waveform application allows customers to modify this part of a radio in line with national requirements. Developing an indigenous national waveform, including the crypto algorithm, gives customers true independence. Rohde & Schwarz provides airborne transceivers, which use state-of-the-art communications methods that were standardized throughout NATO.
