Rohde & Schwarz stands ready for Project Quadriga

Rohde & Schwarz stands ready for Project Quadriga with its highly secure software defined airborne radios of the SOVERON family.

Germany has recently approved the procurement of Project Quadriga, which will see the German Air Force replacing 38 Tranche 1 Eurofighters with newbuild Tranche 4 aircraft. These new aircraft will be equipped with state-of-the art future proof equipment.

All Eurofighter TYPHOON aircraft are currently flying with highly secure communications technology from Rohde & Schwarz, where each aircraft is fitted with two V-/UHF transceivers.

Airborne transceivers from Rohde & Schwarz use sophisticated communications methods that were standardized throughout NATO, including the digital and fast frequency-hopping algorithm SATURN (Second Generation of Anti-Jam Tactical UHF Radio for NATO), as well as embedded NATO cryptology. This solution has already been SECAN and BSI certified to allow secure communications up to NATO SECRET.

Rohde & Schwarz stands ready with its highly advanced SOVERON family of airborne radios. We are proud to work with Airbus, having delivered communications equipment for all recent Eurofighter TYPHOON Tranches.
