Since many years, Rohde & Schwarz is the preferred supplier of airborne radio communications for the F-16 Program.

Rohde & Schwarz has delivered its 1000th AN/ARC-238 software-defined radio (SDR) to Lockheed Martin for integration on F-16 aircraft. The AN/ARC-238 consists of two airborne radios from the SOVERON radio family, namely the R&S MR6000R/L radios, and meets perfectly the secure communication requirements while being fully qualified on the F-16. AN/ARC-238 is the U.S. government designation for the independent company’s R&S MR6000R/L radios.
