Rohde and Schwarz to supply radios for aircraft carriers

The Aircraft Carrier Alliance (ACA) has awarded Rohde and Schwarz (R&S) a contract for the production phase of the VHF and UHF Emergency Radio System, for both Queen Elizabeth Class (QEC) aircraft carriers.

With the design phase complete, R&S will now build two equipment racks, housing R&S V/UHF M3SR series 4400 software-defined radios and recording equipment, for each vessel.
