Aircraft-based COMINT for military, border, and maritime use introduced by Rohde & Schwarz

MUNICH, 5 Sept. 2012. RF and microwave analytics specialist Rohde & Schwarz in Munich is introducing a communications intelligence (COMINT) system for airborne deployment in military missions, border protection, or maritime rescue operations.

The onboard system is designed to, identify and locate radio signals, and is integrated into the DA42 MPP Guardian surveillance aircraft from Diamond Airborne Sensing, a subsidiary of Diamond Aircraft Industries.

Airborne COMINT significantly the efficiency of monitoring and intelligence missions, since aircraft make it easier to monitor difficult-to-access terrains, the open sea, and green borders, Rohde & Schwarz officials say.

The system is available in three different configurations -- basic version, standard version, and advanced version. It can be adapted to customer requirements and expanded as needed.

Broadband signal interception and processing enhance performance, and can monitor several radio channels per frequency band. Rohde & Schwarz has based its airborne COMINT system on the R&S ESMD wideband monitoring receiver and a compact direction finding antenna that has practically no influence on the flight characteristics of the aircraft.

Rohde & Schwarz chose the DA42 MPP aircraft from Diamond Airborne Sensing to carry the system because it was designed to accommodate monitoring and intelligence modules, company officials say. The DA42 MPP is based on the twin-engine DA42 NG.

The airborne monitoring and intelligence solution from Rohde & Schwarz and Diamond Airborne Sensing will have its first public premiere at the ILA Berlin Air Show next week in Berlin.
