Rheinmetall Creates JV With Rohde

Rheinmetall have signed an agreement with Rohde & Schwarz to create a joint venture in order to bid together for Germany’s two major mobile tactical communications and network programs.

Rheinmetall- Rohde & Schwarz joint venture which is still pending anti-trust approval, will be bidding for two Bundeswehr procurement programmes: MoTaKo (Mobile Taktische Kommunikation) or mobile tactical communication), and MoTIV (Mobiler Taktischer Informationsverbund) or mobile tactical information network.

Rheinmetall will hold a 74.9% share in the new company, with the remaining 25.1% held by Rohde & Schwarz.

In this vital project, the joint venture plans to draw on the expertise and solutions of additional partners in order to put forward the best-possible proposal with regard to capabilities and competitiveness, while taking due account of national confidentiality and security imperatives.

As digital services for mobile elements, MoTaKo and MoTIV are the German Army’s principal modernization projects for ground operations, with Bundeswehr’s entire communication system and thousands of vehicles earmarked for retrofitting in the medium term; the scope of applications extends from tactical operation centres down to the individual infantryman on the ground.

In the new joint venture company, Rheinmetall will be responsible for the command systems, the cross-functional operator interface and the complete vehicle integration process. Drawing on its core competency of secure communication, Rohde & Schwarz is in charge of the complete architecture, including IT and cyber security as well as the IP-based system solution for robust, military voice and data transmission, including incorporation of components and solutions from other contractors
