Rohde & Schwarz and MESIT jointly invest in secure communications solutions and form DICOM

Rohde & Schwarz and MESIT have established a new joint venture (JV) with MESIT as the majority shareholder.

 

The strategic purpose is to further enhance the trusted, interoperable SOVERON communications system. SOVERON stands for fully integrated, high-performance and scalable trusted communications solutions for all branches of the armed forces. SOVERON strengthens customers digital sovereignty and gives them the greatest possible independence from manufacturers.

 

The JV is named DICOM, s.r.o. and has commercial operations in Uherské Hradiště in the Czech Republic. DICOM will perform advanced research and development (R&D). It will initially focus on the new SOVERON lightweight handheld software-defined radio (SDR) with networking and multiband capability in the UHF/VHF frequency range.

 

"We are delighted with this joint investment. The creation of DICOM allows both partner companies to accelerate the development and production of the SOVERON product portfolio. With this JV, the Czech Republic becomes the fourth country in which Rohde & Schwarz is represented in sales, service (Prague), manufacturing (Vimperk) and R&D (Uherské Hradiště)," explains Pavel Šalanda, Managing Director at DICOM.

 

"MESIT and Rohde & Schwarz have already successfully co-operated in the past. Now we are taking the next logical step by joining forces in R&D to take full advantage of our joint capacities. Together we will be able to successfully address new markets," adds Igor Gerek, Managing Director at DICOM and Deputy Charmain of the Board at MESIT.

 

“Many defense forces around the world use cutting-edge solutions from Rohde & Schwarz. We are looking forward to expanding our presence in the Czech Republic. This new JV will create new technological advances, allowing us to provide digital sovereignty to our customers," concludes Bosco Novak, Executive Vice President Secure Communications Division at Rohde & Schwarz.
