HENSOLDT at Singapore Airshow 2020: Presenting its Wide Range of Integrated Airborne Solutions

“Rapidly changing and evolving geo-political landscapes in Asia Pacific continues to shape modernisation of air capabilities”, says Nathan Manzi, head of Asia-Pacific at HENSOLDT. “As a specialist in defence electronics, we are a world leader in missile and laser warning systems with more than 8000 sensors sold globally.” In fact, HENSOLDT builds upon a legacy of more than 40 years in Singapore, with the foundation laid by its subsidiary Kelvin Hughes.

Singapore, 6 February 2020 – For this year, the sensor solutions provider HENSOLDT focuses on its broad range of sensor technologies in the airborne solutions domain. The sensor solutions are deployed on various platforms, including helicopters, aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles. Among its main areas of activity in the realm of the aerospace are air defence, mission management, self-defence of aircraft, signal intelligence and data link as well as identification-friend-or-foe (IFF) solutions and avionics computers. Products shown include the SferiRec LCR 100 flight data recorder, the Lygarion data Link and the MILDS missile warning sensor.

At Singapore Airshow, HENSOLDT will introduce “Kalaetron” for the first time in Singapore, a fully integrated signals intelligence (SIGINT) system that is part of the newly released Kalaetron product line. The Kalaetron system provides warning against radar threats but can also be used for strategic signals intelligence in an enhanced configuration. Due to its fully digital design, the new radar warner detects and identifies threats incredibly quickly and with an very low false alarm rate, over an extremely wide frequency range

In the area of airborne ISR, Hensoldt displays its ARGOS-II HD A1 multi-sensor system for airborne Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions, which can be fitted with High Definition (HD) infrared and daylight cameras as well as laser rangefinders and laser illuminators.
