The counter-UAV Suite Xpeller, the ISR/MPR Radar PrecISR, the Airborne Missile Protection Suite AMPS, Kalaetron and the Passive Radar TwInvis are among HENSOLDT’s main exhibits at DEFEXPO 2020.

Lucknow, India, 4 February 2020 – One of HENSOLDT’s core competence lies in recognizing threats and protecting end users from them. At DEFEXPO 2020 in Lucknow, HENSOLDT presents its broad range of sensor solutions for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance operations as well as to improve the safety and operational effectiveness for Air, Land and Security domains.

In Lucknow, HENSOLDT will be presenting a very precise picture of the airspace, covered by its true passive radar system TwInvis. The system uses several transmission sources from various locations. It can also interconnect several sensors into one sensor cluster. The transmitters and the TwInvis sensors can be separated from each other at a distance of up to 100 kilometres. Unlike systems based on passive emitter tracking, requiring aircraft to emit, TwInvis does not depend on any such transmission and is thus a true passive system.

Alongside Twlnvis, HENSOLDT also displays its innovative airborne multi–function ISR radar PrecISR 1000, providing armed forces and border protection authorities with extremely high situational awareness and an extremely short reaction time. The software-defined radar translates latest achievements in active array antennas (GaN-based AESA tiles) and digital receiver technology into a scalable high-performance sensor which can be installed aboard helicopters, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and fixed-wing mission aircraft.

Also on display is HENSOLDT’s Airborne Missile Protection System (AMPS), a flexible and modular self-protection suite, comprising of a 3rd-generation UV technology-based missile warning system, a laser warning system with beam rider capabilities, the fully digital, modular and scalable radar warning receiver Kalaetron, and countermeasures. The system offers optimal weight, power and price performance for airborne platforms. The modularity of Kalaetron allows seamless scaling-up of RWR to ESM and ELINT in the future by adding additional components.

HENSOLDT is showcasing its counter-UAV system Xpeller for 24/7 protection from illicit intrusions of UAVs over critical areas – even at long ranges – offering a low false alarm rate and high probability of interception. The system is highly modular and combines numerous sensors (radar, electro-optics, direction finders) and target neutralization effectors like jammers and drone catchers through a single Command and Control system (C2), enabling all agencies to carry out their individual requirements but analyse and respond collectively.
