Rohde & Schwarz was awarded a contract by Boeing to deliver R&S MR6000R multiband-capable airborne transceivers from the SOVERON software defined radio family to be installed on the Red Hawk. The T-7A Red Hawk is the new advanced pilot training system for the U.S. Air Force that will train the next generation of pilots for decades to come.

Manufactured by Boeing and its risk sharing teammate Saab, it is an all-new purpose built training system designed for the mission, giving the U.S. Air Force a flexible design that can easily adapt as technologies and training needs evolve. Boeing was awarded a $9.2 billion contract for 351 T-7A aircraft, 46 simulators and associated ground equipment to be delivered and installed, replacing Air Education and Training Command’s 57-year-old fleet of T-38C Talons.

R&S MR6000R meets small size, lightweight and low power requirements, weighing less than four kilograms. It covers the frequency range from 30 MHz to 400 MHz and supports the NATO frequency algorithms HAVE QUICK II for interoperability and digital fast frequency hopping standard SATURN.

“This cooperation is the culmination of years of unwavering teamwork by Boeing and Rohde & Schwarz,” says Michael Hostetter, Vice President, Boeing Defense & Space, Germany. “Along with updated technology and performance capabilities, the T-7A will be fitted with an enhanced radio communications suite, giving it an added benefit, preparing pilots for fifth-generation aircraft. We are looking forward to working with Rohde & Schwarz on this very important project, as well as future opportunities.”

“We are proud to work with Boeing, having committed ourselves to delivering systems that meet the training needs of the U.S. Air Force,” Frank Dunn, President and CEO, Rohde & Schwarz USA (and Canada), Inc., explains. “The airborne transceivers from the SOVERON radio family provide excellent RF characteristics suitable for applications in harsh military environments for all types of airborne platforms. As this is a software defined radio, we can adapt it for further training opportunities.”

“Boeing’s extended partnership with Rohde & Schwarz is testimony to how Boeing further integrates its global operations into Germany’s aerospace fabric and partners across the Atlantic with German industry primes on cutting-edge aerospace programs,” says Dr. Michael Haidinger, president, Boeing Germany, Central & Eastern Europe, BeNeLux & Nordics.
