Hagenuk Marinekommunikation to develop HF module for the Bundeswehr`s new generation of joint radio systems

Category: Defence Industry

The Federal Office for Information Management and Information Technology of the German Armed Forces (Bundeswehr) has commissioned the ATLAS subsidiary Hagenuk Marinekommunikation GmbH (HMK) to develop the HF radio module for the Bundeswehr`s joint radio systems (SVFuA).

The order also covers the corresponding accessories, such as power amplifiers and antenna interface equipment.

The SVFuA systems provide the basis for the Bundeswehr's future generations of software defined ra-dios (SDRs). These next-generation mobile radio systems will be based on the standardized Software Communications Architecture (SCA). They can then be deployed as network nodes and also as terminals with loadable narrowband and wideband waveforms.

Hagenuk Marinekommunikation GmbH has gained an outstanding reputation worldwide as a specialist for HF technology. Since the early 1980s, the Bundeswehr has relied on the HF units produced by HMK, which were procured for both stationary and mobile operations.

More than 1000 VLF-HF receivers, more than 300 HF transceivers of the output classes 125 W, 500 W und 1000 W as well as HF transmitters with an output of 10 kW have been delivered to date. All units are suitable for LINK operations, and some models are designed for the frequency hopping mode according to NATO regulations.

The implementation of a high-performance 10 kW transmitter, with subsequent series production, was a particularly successful development contract for the Bundeswehr IT Office.

Hagenuk Marinekommunikation GmbH is proud that the governmental customer is continuing its proven partnership with HMK by commissioning the HF components for the new generation of radio systems.
