|Rohde & Schwarz|
Munich August 5, 2015 - The integrated communications system from electronics company Rohde & Schwarz has been selected by the British company BAE Systems for the Royal Navy's Type 26 Global Combat Ship. In June 2015, the two companies concluded a contract to equip three Type 26 Global Combat Ships each with a communications system. The ships will be deployed by the Royal Navy, and follow-up orders are in the pipeline. The key factors in the decision were the system's technical superiority, its user-friendliness and its outstanding cost-effectiveness. Its unique security concept has qualified Rohde & Schwarz as a reliable NATO partner also for future ship projects.
