Rohde & Schwarz plant hits 10,000 SDR milestone

Rohde & Schwarz’s manufacturing plant in Memmingen, Germany has achieved a significant milestone, having delivered more than 10,000 M3SR software-defined radios (SDRs) — the majority of which are Series 4400 VHF/UHF units.

The Memmingen plant is a competency centre for mission-critical equipment, responsible for electronic module assembly, microelectronics, microwave engineering, final production and manufacturing of test equipment for most of Rohde & Schwarz’s products.

The plant has a calibration laboratory that is accredited by the German accreditation body, DAkkS, and an antenna test chamber.

The SDRs provide a range of interfaces and waveforms, including standard and proprietary frequency hopping waveforms, as well as compliance with relevant NATO standards. Military data transmission techniques such as LINK11 and LINK22 are supported.

The company’s SDRs are used by navies, armies and civil ATC tower applications around the world.

“By making targeted technical adjustments and enhancements, we have been able to continuously meet our customers’ needs and improve our market position,” said Hartmut Jäschke, Executive Vice President Secure Communications Division, Rohde & Schwarz.

“Our professional production and manufacturing helps ensure quality at the highest level. The high reliability and technical performance of the radio is a decisive reason why our customers choose our SDRs.”
