Rohde & Schwarz Emirates has recently received a contract to deliver external and internal communications systems for new corvettes of a Gulf navy.

Rohde & Schwarz Emirates will provide the ships with NAVICS, the innovative, high-quality and reliable naval integrated communications system, in addition to the external line-of-sight (VHF/UHF) and beyond-line-of-sight (HF) communications solutions it has already provided.

In addition to external communications, NAVICS provides onboard communications and ensures a multilevel security architecture that allows secure, trusted and tamper-proof communications, i.e. third parties will not be able to interfere with information exchange.

In normal operation, all real-time services and applications offered by NAVICS® run redundantly in virtual machines. As a result, when a server defect occurs, the affected services are very easily and automatically moved to the remaining server, with minimal downtime. Non-real-time services are restarted automatically on the remaining server.

Even in the event of a complete server failure, the last valid configuration is retained for the voice terminals and their communications lines. Peer-to-peer communications between individual users and restricted conference features remain available in this emergency operation mode.
