Estonia – Estonian Air Force


Estonian Air Force

Project Description

In 2005, the Estonian Air Force awarded a contract to Rohde & Schwarz for supplying R&S®M3SR Series4400 stationary, software defined radios for a nationwide radio network. The R&S®RCMS II remote control & monitoring system from Rohde & Schwarz was deployed for monitoring and controlling these radios. This IP-based system was adapted to customer requirements. It provides a graphical overview that presents all relevant information to users in a control center. The intuitive user interface for the individual radios simplifies operation of this complex radio network. The system displays warning indications and failure messages in a logical and easy-to-understand way. That reduces operating costs and increases the availability of the radiocommunications network.

In 2007, the network had to be expanded to handle additional tasks for search and rescue missions. To do this, the Estonian Air Force ordered R&S®Series4200 radios from Rohde & Schwarz. Since the R&S®RCMS II remote control & monitoring system was in place, it was easy to integrate the new radios into the existing monitoring system using their IP interface.

The system's client-server architecture provides excellent benefits: Multiple clients at different locations have a constant overview of the current status of the radios, and ― provided that the access rights are configured accordingly ― they have full control over them.

The combination of the R&S®M3SR Series4400 with the R&S®Series4200 ideally completed the nationwide radiocommunications network for the Estonian Air Force's ground-to-air communications. And the R&S®RCMS II remote control & monitoring system reduces the workload of the staff members who are responsible for configuring the radios for missions, and of the maintenance crew, which can conduct its activities remotely.
