Slovak Vipers to Fly with Rohde & Schwarz Radiocommunications

Date: Issue 108 - July 2021

Thanks to the collaboration between Rohde & Schwarz and Lockheed Martin, the Slovak Air Force has become the next customer to receive F-16 aircraft equipped with Rohde & Schwarz secure communications. The Slovak Air Force will receive 14 F-16 Block 70 Viper aircraft in the mid-2020s. To increase local support and service capabilities for the air force, Slovakia will also procure an R&S URTS universal radio test set.

Rohde & Schwarz will provide the AN/ARC-238 software-defined radio (SDR), the U.S. government designation for the independent company's R&S MR6000R/L radios.
