Paris Air Show 2019: Rohde & Schwarz to present solutions for sovereign digital airborne communications


Communications specialist Rohde & Schwarz will showcase SOVERON AR, the new generation of software defined airborne radios (SDAR), and network-capable waveforms at the international air show in Le Bourget. The airborne radio stands for information superiority in network centric operations and utmost flexibility in deployment.

Thanks to the innovative technology of SOVERON AR and network-capable broadband waveform applications, government customers achieve information superiority in deployment, which is decisive for effectiveness and survivability in missions. The ability to select different waveforms developed by Rohde & Schwarz for various deployment requirements is especially important in this regard. The SOVERON WAVE family transmits data and up to two voice channels in parallel, at high speed and with different priorities and secure encryption algorithms. Within the SOVERON WAVE family, users can choose waveforms that best meet their requirements for range, data rate and jamming resistance.

Based on the internationally standardized Software Communications Architecture (SCA), SOVERON AR has been developed with strict separation between the device platform and the software. This makes it possible to port waveform applications from other manufacturers and existing waveforms to the radio, providing backward compatibility with legacy radio systems, thus securing future investments.

A big operational advantage of the airborne solution is certification compliance with both military and civil airborne communications standards. This makes SOVERON AR the only SCA based radio that meets the civil certification regulations of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).

Rohde & Schwarz will showcase its portfolio at the Paris Air Show in Le Bourget from June 17 to 23, 2019, in hall 2A, German Pavilion, booth B286.
