Systems engineering at a glance 

Systems engineering is vital to the successful delivery of turnkey ATC systems

Air traffic control solutions vary in size and complexity, from small sites to nationwide infrastructure. The introduction of IP technology makes product interoperability among different vendors a challenge. For safe and secure daily operations, Rohde & Schwarz experts provide extensive systems engineering for cohesive design, integration, verification and validation that ensures the easy and successful deployment of every air traffic control project.

Core activities and objectives

Interdisciplinary approach encompasses all aspects of an engineered system lifecycle

Systems engineering enables a structured development process that supports a project through the concept phase, production, operation and sustainability. High-level requirements and standards are broken down into functions and performance indicators to create the optimal architectural concept for hardware and software development. System analysis, engineering, test definition and end-to-end traceability as well as change management are examples of routine tasks in complex ATC projects.

Systems engineering processes

A process specifically developed for ATC solutions

Rohde & Schwarz has analyzed the most important system engineering standards (e.g. ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288:2015) and tailored them to ATC solutions. Starting with the definition of precise project team roles. Our process defines clear inputs and outputs for all project milestones to flexibly satisfy specific customer requirements or methods. Deep analysis starts in the offer phase and continues through design, implementation and final system acceptance. All interfaces between the customer and other Rohde & Schwarz project parties are carefully considered here.

High level of expertise worldwide

Interdisciplinary teams cover all system aspects

System engineers are a communications node for all project parties and determine how ATC solutions are deployed, operated and maintained over time. Our system architects, product experts (radios, VCS, etc.), process specialists and test engineers (product, system integration and acceptance) have experience in various industries and work together around the world as a team to develop smart concepts and innovative products and system solutions.

Standardized test environment

System integration labs verify full CERTIUM® interoperability

The CERTIUM® ecosystem is constantly evolving. Every new product release is subject to extensive interoperability and regression testing for continuous end-to-end performance from microphone to antenna and low risk project implementation. Our labs offer: 

  • E2E integration testing using real hardware 
  • Modular setups for flexible test execution for different product constellations
  • Verified compatibility between CERTIUM® and third-party products (e.g. ED137 based recorders)

System realization and verification

Ensuring high-quality systems through E2E tests during system implementation

Rohde & Schwarz performs in-depth testing at the device, subsystem and system levels for CERTIUM® systems over the entire project implementation phase.  Testing peaks in the final acceptance test. Customers can observe the test locally at Rohde & Schwarz or remotely with video and document sharing. The site acceptance test is final proof that all customer requirements have been met for the complete end-to-end system.
