Posted on: March 24, 2020

Rohde & Schwarz has been recognized as a key contributor to NAV CANADA’s mission success over the years, particularly for the provision of high power 4 kW HF radio transmitters as well as ED-137 telephony gateways.

Rohde & Schwarz, a market leading turnkey system provider for ATC communications, direction finding, test and measurement, and security equipment, announced today that it has been awarded NAV CANADA’s Technology Award for 2019 in recognition of providing outstanding support to Canada’s civil air navigation service provider (ANSP).

The award recognizes Rohde & Schwarz as a key contributor to NAV CANADA’s mission success over the years. Following a recent project to provide HF receivers, Rohde & Schwarz was engaged in the delivery of two additional projects. The first concerned the provision of HF transmitter systems for oceanic control, each with an output power of 4 kW for voice communications in the North Atlantic region. The second was for ED-137 telephony gateways interconnecting legacy analog circuits to a Voice-Over-IP (VoIP) network. All three projects were required to modernize and improve NAV CANADA’s communications over and across the Atlantic Ocean.
