The Italian Coast Guard’s new self-righting and unsinkable patrol boat CP420 “Natale De Grazia,” is fitted with the SOVERON communications suite from Rohde & Schwarz.
The integration of Rohde & Schwarz equipment on the new vessel continues decades of collaboration between the two organisations.
The Natale De Grazia was launched in December and the new vessel was built by Intermarine. The HF radios from Rohde & Schwarz also provide a security architecture that allows secure voice communications, i.e. 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.”
The Italian Coast Guard’s new patrol boat is fitted with Rohde & Schwarz’s SOVERON communications suite, which includes the R&S M3SR Series4100 High Frequency (HF) radios, which enable authorities to patrol large coastal areas while allowing the ship’s crew to effectively exchange information with the shore and other vessels, as well as joint forces and governmental authorities.
All Rohde & Schwarz equipment complies with the relevant MIL-STDs for naval applications and is trusted by more than 40 navies.
The Rohde & Schwarz technology group was founded more than 85 years ago.
As on June 30, 2020, Rohde & Schwarz, which is headquartered in Munich, Germany had around 12,300 employees worldwide.
The independent group achieved a net revenue of EUR 2.58 billion in the 2019/2020 fiscal year (July to June).
