Rohde & Schwarz was awarded a contract to deliver R&S M3AR software defined, multiband-capable airborne radios for the Royal Thai Air Force’s (RTAF) new Textron Aviation T-6C Texan II training aircraft, to be called the T-6TH within the RTAF. The R&S M3AR multiband, multimode, multirole radios are the solution of choice for the reliable transmission of mission-critical information, whether for jet or propeller aircraft, helicopters or unmanned aerial vehicles.
“We have a long history of working with the RTAF, having committed ourselves to delivering secure communication solutions that meet national requirements. Here, local content and involvement of local industry are key. With our local partner, we bring commonality and fit for the RTAF’s secure communications. We know our customers and support them as a long-term, reliable partner. RTAF knows, we keep our promises,” Vice President Application Segment Avionics Rohde & Schwarz Stefan Pleyer said.

The compact and lightweight transceivers offer high performance, making them suitable for operation in all types of aircraft, including unmanned aerial vehicles.
