Rohde & Schwarz will be demonstrating its comprehensive portfolio for air traffic safety at ILA Berlin Air Show 2016 which will be held from 1 to 4 June 2016 at Berlin ExpoCenter Airport.

The highlight will be the R&S MR6000A, the world’s only military airborne transceiver that also meets the civil aviation certification requirements of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The company will also present its wide range of solutions for air traffic control and air traffic management.

The R&S MR6000A, a member of the successful VHF/UHF R&S M3AR airborne transceiver family, is the first airborne transceiver in the world to fulfill both military and civil avionics specifications. Within the scope of the A400M program, Rohde & Schwarz developed the software and hardware for the R&S MR6000A in line with civil avionics standards as per DO-178B and DO-254 Level C. This process was successfully tested by Airbus and the EASA, earning the EASA Statement of Technical Satisfaction.

Military aircraft can only operate freely in global airspace if they satisfy both military and civil specifications. The R&S MR6000A can be used for both applications, making it particularly efficient in terms of logistics, integration, maintenance, training and redundancy. Rohde & Schwarz enables timely and efficient compliance with the relevant Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1079/2012 in connection with EASA CS-ACNS-2013-031-R for military airborne communications regarding the requirements for a single European sky.

This standard product for the German Armed Forces' airborne platforms is being used as part of current obsolescence and procurement programs. As a result, even the P-3C Orion, CH-53GS, LUH (H145M) and NH90 Sea Lion are now equipped for future requirements. The R&S M3AR family of transceivers for airborne communications has proven successful in a broad range of applications. Over 7000 of these software defined radios have already been delivered.

The company will also present its concept for virtual control centers for air traffic control. As airspace becomes more crowded, there is a growing demand for load-based reallocation of resources while ensuring sustainable air traffic control (ATC) in line with highest safety standards. As the only provider on the market to offer the ability to create virtual control centers, Rohde & Schwarz meets this challenge with the R&S VCS-4G voice communications system (VCS). The fully voice over IP (VoIP) system is already being used by ATC authorities in Iceland (ISAVIA) and Ireland (IAA). Their control centers are linked across geographic borders for flexible and reliable operation of the airspaces in the North Atlantic flight corridor.

Rohde & Schwarz also offers a comprehensive portfolio of solutions for combating the increasing danger of cyberattacks. Even IP based communications need to be protected against internal and external attacks, especially in security critical environments. Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity develops and produces technologically leading solutions, including highly secure encryption, next generation firewalls and software for network analysis and endpoint security.

The system expertise of Rohde & Schwarz in the field of air traffic management is supplemented by its traffic control and interference hunting solutions. The company also offers scalable intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) systems for airborne platforms for C-ESM and COMINT applications.

The Rohde & Schwarz electronics group offers innovative solutions in the following business fields: test and measurement, broadcast and media, cybersecurity, secure communications, radiomonitoring and radiolocation.

Founded more than 80 years ago, this independent company has an extensive sales and service network and is present in more than 70 countries.

On June 30, 2015, Rohde & Schwarz had approximately 9900 employees. The group achieved a net revenue of EUR 1.83 billion in the 2014/2015 fiscal year (July to June). The company is headquartered in Munich, Germany, and also has strong regional hubs in Asia and the USA.
