HENSOLDT at IDEX2021: Broad Range of innovative Sensor Solutions

Sensor optimize intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance operations for maximum safety and operational effectiveness


Abu Dhabi, 15 Feb 2021 – One of HENSOLDT’s core competences is recognizing threats and protecting end users. At IDEX 2021 in Abu Dhabi, HENSOLDT presents its broad range of sensor solutions for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance operations as well as sensors to improve the safety and operational effectiveness.

In Abu Dhabi, HENSOLDT is presenting TRML-4D, the latest member of its C-Band (NATO G-Band) ground-based air defence radar family. TRML-4D uses the latest AESA (Active Electronically Scanned Array) radar technology, with multiple digitally formed beams. It is designed for near- to long-range ground-to-air detection and for weapon assignment. It is capable of detecting, tracking, and classifying various types of air targets, with an emphasis on small, fast, and low-flying and/or manoeuvring cruise missiles and aircraft as well as hovering helicopters. The newly developed radar is under contract in the region and has been tried and tested in operations on numerous occasions; it ensures rapid response detection and tracking of approximately 1,500 targets in a radius of up to 250 km and at an altitude of up to 30 km.

HENSOLDT is showcasing a very precise picture of the airspace, covered by its 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 truly passive system.

Alongside the ground based radars, HENSOLDT is displaying its counter-UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) 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 such as jammers and drone catchers through a single Command and Control (C2) system.

At IDEX2021 HENSOLDT also displays its innovative airborne multi–function ISR radar PrecISR 1000, providing armed forces and border protection authorities with high situational awareness and a 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, UAVs and fixed-wing mission aircraft.

Also on display is HENSOLDT’s multi-sensor system for Airborne Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions, ARGOS-II HDT, which can be fitted with High Definition (HD) infrared and daylight cameras as well as laser rangefinders and laser illuminators.

HENSOLDT’s presence in the Middle East dates back a quarter of a century. HENSOLDT’s strong relationship with countries in the region has remained consistent. This has earned HENSOLDT the reputation from its long-standing Middle East customers as a reliable partner in the area of defence and security electronics. The company supports many active programmes in the region ranging from airborne radar on combat aircraft to sensors for border security.
