Cybernetica has won a contract for Romanian Naval Authority’s (RNA) procurement to upgrade the country’s radio communication system used in its inland waterways. With the upgrade, the existing radio solution will be upgraded to a modern VHF communication system comprising of a novel system architecture and state-of-the-art equipment. Romania has the longest stretch of the Danube River, and the whole length of it in the country will be covered with Cybernetica’s radio communication system.

Cybernetica has a strong track record in maritime technologies, like surveillance and navigation systems, and also reliable radio communications solutions.

According to Martin Link, the Head of Surveillance Systems Department, the new radio communication system will help manage traffic on the waterway and ensure safety for all vessels. “The new solution allows for highly capable vessel traffic management via radio at any moment 24/7, meaning higher situational awareness, which in turn brings efficiency and reduces potential threats and errors. It is also helpful for effectively coordinating rescue activities should there be a need,” explained Link.

The work is carried out for the Romanian Naval Authority, a specialized executive agency in Romania under ministry of Transportation ensuring safety of navigation. This is a project marking a continuation of a professional and satisfactory cooperation. Cybernetica has delivered maritime surveillance and radio systems for RNA’s operations for over 15 years. The previous systems, many still operational, are in use at both, at the shores of Black Sea and on Danube River and its canals, and at the country’s main harbours.
