At the 7th Indo Defence Expo & Forum (02-05 November 2016; Jakarta, Indonesia), Rohde & Schwarz will demonstrate its comprehensive portfolio of integrated communications and radio reconnaissance solutions.
The R&S ARDRONIS counter-microdrone solution from the German electronics company will be presented for the first time in Asia. The system enables users to identify microdrone control signals early on, and locate the drone’s operator and disrupt the control link.
Another highlight to be showcased at Indo Defence is R&S NAVICS, a new, VoIP-based switching system for naval communications that offers innovative technology and a state-of-the-art, intuitive user interface.
R&S ARDRONIS is an innovative solution for microdrone communications detection and disruption. In addition to effectively counteracting microdrone activity, this solution also offers the capability of integration into higher-order networked systems or flexible security systems. The threats arising from drones affect, for example, critical infrastructures, VIPs and public events. They range from violation of privacy and industrial espionage to severe attacks. For example, drones can interfere with air traffic control (ATC) signals, seriously jeopardizing airport safety. The R&S ARDRONIS solution is optimized for countering the threats arising from radio-controlled microdrones.
Furthermore, Rohde & Schwarz will introduce its new R&S DDF1555 compact direction finder. The R&S DDF1555 is the heart of a full-featured man-portable reconnaissance system for outdoor applications. It combines accurate direction finding with wideband monitoring capabilities. The direction finder is an ideal solution for applications that require portable and mobile direction finders for use in outdoor environments. The R&S DDF1555 expands the portfolio of the proven Rohde & Schwarz COMINT/CESM solutions, which can be adapted to meet a broad range of requirements.
The integrated naval communications systems from Rohde & Schwarz offer an innovative design as well as outstanding ease of use and cost efficiency. The new R&S NAVICS VoIP-based switching system serves as a core component to deliver future-ready voice and data communications for all classes of ships. The system interconnects the onboard voice terminals and all other subsystems for internal and external communications via a uniform IP network. An intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) provides a modern and convenient means of operating the sophisticated system.
Another highlight that will be on display in Jakarta is the R&S SDTR software-defined tactical radio. The R&S SDTR provides secure and reliable communications in tactical applications. Designed to meet the highest technological standards, the radio enables state-of-the-art command and control capabilities, operational flexibility and integrative communications across the various branches of the armed forces. It additionally delivers simultaneous voice and data communications when used with waveforms from the R&S HDR family.
