About Rohde & Schwarz GmbH & Co. KG

Rohde & Schwarz in brief

For more than 80 years, Rohde & Schwarz has stood for quality, precision and innovation in all fields of wireless communications. The electronics group is strategically based on five pillars: test and measurement, broadcast and media, cybersecurity, secure communications, monitoring and network testing.

Reconnaissance for armed forced, homeland security and security abroad

Reliable situational information is essential for making decisions in crisis situations and during military missions. Communications intelligence (COMINT) is a key factor. As a passive instrument, it can deploy its capabilities unobserved and far from the area of interest.

Rohde & Schwarz offers scalable strategic and tactical intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) systems for various platforms (air, land, sea). These are available with exchangeable sensor subsystems for either manual or automatic SIGINT / EW operations. The right solution for challenging, complex user requirements can be selected from a wide range of antennas, receivers, direction finders with multichannel signal processing, and analysis units – to combine outstanding RF performance over a very wide frequency range from HF to SHF with maximum operational flexibility.

Rohde & Schwarz innovative electronic intelligence (ELINT) solutions are designed for stationary sites or to be fitted to mobile platforms such as ships or aircraft. They are even suitable for deployment as a temporary payload. The new radar signal intercept and analysis system focuses on operator usability, functionality and operation in complex signal environments. The system features cutting-edge components, ensuring lossless digital signal processing. The highly sensitive receiving equipment is capable of intercepting and analyzing modern low-power radar signals.

Secure communications

Software defined radios satisfy the highest security standards, enable network centric operations and ensure interoperability between all branches of the armed forces and between allied nations. Communications is encrypted using both NATO and proprietary methods – drawing on the company's decades of experience and expertise in this field. Rohde & Schwarz radio systems protect communications in land-based operations. They are installed in various types of aircraft and helicopters and integrated into naval vessels of all sizes. Rohde & Schwarz developed the joint radio system of the German armed forces (SVFuA). The SVFuA is installed as a communications hub in command vehicles. It kicks off the first phase of the MoTaKo modernization project for digitizing mobile tactical communications within the German armed forces. The goal of the project is to completely modernize all radio equipment used by the German armed forces over the next few years.

Cybersecurity for businesses, government authorities and critical infrastructures

The rise of digitization and global networking has resulted in a rapid increase in potential threats for businesses, government authorities and critical infrastructures. In the new cybersecurity business field, Rohde & Schwarz and its subsidiaries gateprotect GmbH, Sirrix AG, Rohde & Schwarz SlT GmbH and ipoque GmbH offer a broad range of technologically leading solutions for IT and network security. The portfolio focuses on crypto solutions, next generation firewalls and endpoint security applications, ranging from small all‑in‑one products to customized solutions for critical infrastructures. The company plans to strengthen its position in the B2B field with first‑class expertise and high‑tech solutions "made in Germany" under the Rohde & Schwarz cybersecurity brand.
