Rohde & Schwarz Supports Royal Malaysian Navy Missions

Communications Suite for LEKIU-class Delivered on Budget and Early

The Royal Malaysian Navy’s (RMN) LEKIU-class frigates, KD JEBAT and KD LEKIU, are the most modern of RMN surface vessels. To ensure seamless connectivity and support the RMN’s missions, Rohde & Schwarz has delivered and commissioned its NAVICS IP integrated communications system (ICS) into the frigates on budget and three months ahead of schedule, working under a contract with Boustead Naval Shipyard Sdn Bhd.

Having upgraded the vessels with NAVICS, and modern M3SR software defined radios (SDR – Series 4100 HF, Series 4400 VHF/UHF), Rohde & Schwarz also integrates and interfaces with existing third-party systems on board, such as the datalink, message handling, public address and ship telephone systems.

“Providing a safe, future-ready investment for the Royal Malaysian Navy in time and on budget, NAVICS interconnects the onboard services – voice, message handling and C4I,” commented Hansjörg Herrbold, Vice President Market Segment Navy.

Rohde & Schwarz has provided more than 40 navies with state-of-the-art communications technology and in the last fiscal year contracted 14 additional platforms with NAVICS ICS, the global references for which include the Royal Navy’s Type 26 Global Combat Ship.
