Early July, Rohde & Schwarz, submitted an offer to armasuisse, the Swiss procurement authority, for Ersa mob Komm, a main subproject of TK A. This was conducted via the Swiss subsidiary Roschi Rohde & Schwarz, well established in the country for 70 years. The TK A program will pilot the Swiss Army into the next generation of digital command and control (C2) effectiveness for the future.

Rohde & Schwarz plays a leading role in shaping tactical communications architecture and its implementation in Germany and many NATO countries, which Switzerland will be able to benefit from. The SOVERON tactical network consists of software defined radios and associated network-capable waveforms from the independent company and a tactical router from the partner organization RUAG. This network connects to heterogeneous infrastructures, already providing the basis for a comprehensive, innovative system solution in Germany. Following intensive field tests conducted by the German Army, the radio systems were selected for the VJTF project.

Together with RUAG, Rohde & Schwarz offers the Swiss Armed Forces cutting-edge European technology and national digital sovereignty. The latter is ensured by data sovereignty with no backdoors, the ability to adapt the cryptology to meet national requirements, Swiss added value and comprehensive local maintenance capabilities for all mission-critical components.

Rohde & Schwarz also offers solutions for TK A subprojects Ersa IMFS and KT planning, where the company and its partners will be ready to seamlessly implement TK A with correspondingly reduced risks.
