Sydney, March 23, 2022 – With the formal handover today of the vessel ADV Cape Otway to the Royal Australian Navy (RAN), Managing Director Rohde & Schwarz Australia Gareth Evans congratulated both Austal and the Rohde & Schwarz team for exceptional performance in delivery of the company's Naval Integrated Communications System (NAVICS).

"It's a great day for Austal and Navy, but also for Rohde & Schwarz Australia, which as Communication Systems Integrator (CSI) has achieved a number of record milestones that have significantly contributed to this day becoming a reality," Mr. Evans said. "Within just five months of contract execution we completed the design of our customized NAVICS internal and external communications solution for the Cape class."

In an extraordinary feat, both Factory and Harbor Acceptance Testing were successfully completed within 11 months and 17 months respectively of contract award. This is an outstanding achievement by any measure and most certainly in the Australian context, "and I'm extremely proud of the effort of the Rohde & Schwarz Australia team and their counterparts at Austal," Mr. Evans continued. "In addition, the system they've integrated into Cape Otway is the first Multi-Level Security (MLS) NAVICS system to have completed this level of operational preparedness anywhere in the world."

Rohde & Schwarz Australia Head of Maritime Domain Kieran McLaughlin said the company leveraged experience gained from integration of NAVICS into the Type 26 frigate now being delivered into service with the United Kingdom's Royal Navy.

"Rohde & Schwarz have now provided more than 40 navies with our scalable, modular and customisable solutions," Mr. McLaughlin said. "NAVICS MLS will revolutionise on-board communications for the RAN, implementing the most modern IP-based MLS architecture for naval vessels."

Ben Wardle, General Manager Australian Shipbuilding at Austal said Rohde & Schwarz Australia had proven itself to be capable of not just meeting but exceeding the technical scope of the project. "Austal undertook an extensive scoping activity to identify a capable partner in Australia to develop the latest generation communications systems for the Evolved Cape Class project. Rohde & Schwarz Australia were successful in winning this package of work, and we are now very pleased with the results as proven on the first of class vessel. To make this project a success, Rohde & Schwarz Australia successfully transferred technology from its international counterparts to establish an Australian capability."

Note: NAVICS MLS uses state-of-the-art VoIP and Ethernet standards. Following market tendencies, Rohde & Schwarz has decided to abandon outdated TDM technology, which required heavy proprietary hardware. Instead, NAVICS MLS relies on widely spread industry standards and commercial-of-the-shelf hardware, thus eliminating the risk of expensive obsolete equipment. A multilevel security architecture allows secure, trusted and tamper-proof communications between multiple domains with different security classifications.

Austal Ltd is building a total of six ECCPBs for the RAN.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
