					Rohde & Schwarz Professional Mobile Radio to supply
TETRA network for Kuwait National Petroleum Company

       Munich/Bad Münder, May 07, 2009 — Rohde & Schwarz Professional Mobile
Radio and the Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC), one of the world's
largest oil companies, signed a contract on March 30, 2009, for the delivery of a
TETRA radio system. The project's volume amounts to € 5.7 million. Setup of the
network is scheduled to be completed by April 2010.


Rohde & Schwarz Professional Mobile Radio will provide the state-owned Kuwaiti oil
company, KNPC, with an ACCESSNET-T TETRA network featuring latest-generation base
stations (DIB-R4) and redundant exchanges (DMX-R2). The order also includes explosion-
proof terminals for 1650 users. KNPC employees will communicate using the digital radio
system from Rohde & Schwarz, ensuring fault-free and safe operation of the refineries. In
addition, ACCESSNET-T will provide smooth communications when the crude oil is loaded
onto ships and tankers.

"Our longstanding business relations with the Kuwait National Petroleum Company have
stood the test of time. We are very pleased that this important customer has again chosen
a product from our company for establishing a digital radio network," says Dr. Georg
Haubs, President and CEO of Rohde & Schwarz Professional Mobile Radio GmbH. "The
order from one of the world's largest oil companies strengthens our position as an
internationally leading provider of communications infrastructures for the oil and gas
industry."

Since the end of December 2008, the Rohde & Schwarz subsidiary specializing in
professional mobile radio systems has traded under the name "Rohde & Schwarz
Professional Mobile Radio GmbH." The new name embodies the international term for the
business field of the former R&S BICK Mobilfunk GmbH and positions the company even
better on the global market.
