Rohde & Schwarz will equip the Italian Coast Guard’s new patrol boat, the CP420 Natale De Grazia, with its SOVERON external communications systems. This new vessel, built by Intermarine and launched in December 2020, will expand the operating capabilities of the fleet.
Rohde & Schwarz’s M3SR Series4100 high frequency (HF) radios enable authorities to patrol large coastal areas and will allow the ship’s crew to effectively exchange information with the shore and other vessels, as well as joint forces and governmental authorities.
The HF radios from Rohde & Schwarz also provide a security architecture that allows secure voice communications, meaning third parties will not be able to intercept the information exchange.
“In civil and military missions, all parties need to be able to communicate efficiently and reliably to save lives,” says Mario Zaccagnini, Managing Director of Rohde & Schwarz Italy.
“We are very proud to be the Italian Coast Guard’s partner of choice and will continue to provide full support now and in the future.”
All Rohde & Schwarz equipment complies with the relevant MIL-STDs for naval applications and is used by more than 40 navies.
