At IDEX 2017 in Abu Dhabi in Hall 8 in the German Pavilion, booth C06, Rohde & Schwarz, offering technologically advanced systems for radio-monitoring and secure communications, presents its ELINT solution for detecting, monitoring, and analysing radar signals. A further highlight is the innovative platform of interoperable, powerful communications systems for use on land, in the air, and at sea.
Showcasing its comprehensive portfolio of products at IDEX, Rohde & Schwarz highlights include a new ELINT system to increase the effectiveness of R-ESM systems. Developed with a particular focus on ease of operation and full functionality, the system is optimised for detecting, monitoring, and analysing today’s advanced radar signals. Designed to master challenging signal scenarios, the system solution has already proven itself in operation, especially in acquiring weak and LPI signals in dense signal environments and analysing state-of-the-art multifunctional radars with complex signal structures. The hardware and software are closely harmonised and ensure consistent operation, from acquisition to updating national databases. The innovative ELINT system is modular, scalable and can be used on a variety of platforms. It is already deployed by major European countries.
Rohde & Schwarz equips armed forces with secure communications solutions that enable both interoperability and national information superiority. For mission communications to be effective, national interests have to be protected and communications channels have to be set up between the various forces and countries. This is achieved by using state-of-the-art IP technologies that permit the flexible use of waveforms. Rohde & Schwarz was in charge of the development of the joint radio system (SVFuA) for the German Armed Forces (Bundeswehr).
In this project, the electronics corporation ported internationally recognised SCA-based waveforms to the radio. The R&S HDR family of high data rate and jam-resistant waveforms were developed to precisely match a variety of application scenarios, providing flexible and secure voice and data transmission. In combination with the advanced, IP-based software defined radios (SDR) from Rohde & Schwarz, the system solutions offer exceptional communications features for vehicular, handheld and airborne platforms.
The Rohde & Schwarz portfolio was enhanced to include the proven COMINT/C-ESM solutions that can be fully customised to meet the requirements of the most diverse intelligence missions. Radio monitoring systems from Rohde & Schwarz are deployed on stationary, mobile, naval and airborne platforms around the world.
The electronics company is also showcasing a new solution that addresses a current and growing security threat. The R&S ARDRONIS radio-monitoring solution allows early detection and location of the signals used to control commercial drones and, if necessary, can prevent the drones from being used.
