Hagenuk Marinekommunikation GmbH (HMK), a subsidiary of Atlas Elektronik, is also equipping the 3rd combat support ship (EGV) of the German Navy with its communication system. A contract to this effect was signed recently with the consortium for the Class 702, 2nd batch.
HMK will be responsible for the complete integration, installation and setting-to-work of the integrated communication system for the Class 702 replenishment ships; this includes the entire radio equipment for external radio communications as well as the internal communication system.
The communication system features the latest technologies, such as HF broadband antenna systems, adaptive radio techniques, on-board network (LAN) and wireless internal communication.
The combat support ships of the first batch, the Berlin and the Frankfurt am Main, have already been equipped with communication systems by HMK. The functional capability of the communication systems on these vessels has already been proven in many overseas missions.
