The 1000th AN/ARC-238 software-defined radio (SDR) has been delivered by Rohde & Schwarz to Lockheed Martin for integration on the F-16.

The AN/ARC-238 consists of two airborne radios from the SOVERON radio family, namely the R&S MR6000R/L radios, and meets perfectly the secure communication requirements while being fully qualified on the F-16. AN/ARC-238 is the U.S. government designation for the independent company’s R&S MR6000R/L radios.

“To reach this milestone is a great privilege and showcases our team’s ability to continuously produce and distribute high-quality software-defined airborne radios in support of the F-16,” said Stefan Pleyer, Vice President Market Segment Avionics, Rohde & Schwarz. “I am confident that our SOVERON radios make the F-16 even more efficient. We are proud to work with Lockheed Martin, delivering the 1000th SDR.”

“We congratulate Rohde & Schwarz on this milestone delivery of the 1000th software-defined radio (SDR) for the F-16; a strong demonstration of their longstanding partnership with Lockheed Martin and the F-16,” said Raymond Piselli, Vice President, International Business at Lockheed Martin.

There are more than 3,000 F-16’s operating in 25 countries and Rohde & Schwarz has been the preferred supplier of airborne radio communications for the F-16 Programme, since many years. This includes the new production F-16 Block 70 aircraft for international customers, which is also the newest and most advanced F-16 configuration.
