Rheinmetall Defence and Rohde & Schwarz of Germany have entered a far-reaching partnership with an eye to playing a leading role in the future digitization of Germany’s land forces.
Both have agreed to establish a joint venture to compete for two major German procurement projects, the MoTaKo, which stands for “mobile tactical communications”, and “MoTIV”, short for “mobile tactical information network”.
Rheinmetall Defence will have a 74.9% stake in the joint venture, with Rohde & Schwarz holding the remaining 25.1%. The joint venture plans to draw on the expertise of additional partners during individual project phases.
Representatives of the two companies have now signed a contractual agreement to this effect
