Virtual and Augmented Reality @ HENSOLDT

With SETAS through virtual Berlin.

Taufkirchen/Germany, 29 July 2022 – The successful use of any HENSOLDT sensor solution is determined by intensive training on the system under realistic conditions. Virtual and augmented reality offer us the additional opportunity to work in a wide variety of controllable scenarios.

With cross-location marketplaces for virtual and augmented reality, the HENSOLDT focus is permanently on the exchange on possible application scenarios of VR/AR solutions.

In keeping with the motto "ONE HENSOLDT", colleagues from different locations and line organisations meet in a community of practice to further utilise the opportunities of this technology profitably for our company.

Many HENSOLDT products, such as a TRML-4D radar and SETAS high-performance optics, offer excellent opportunities for VR/AR simulation by creating a "Digital Twin", which saves time and money in development, demos, and user training. These "Digital Twins" can be used as cost-effective substitutes for real devices.

Already today, we can use the award-winning VR training system to carry out maintenance work on the Eurofighter Digital Map Generator (DMG), experience the view of a soldier in the middle of an urban jungle with a "glass" tank, and convince ourselves of the SETAS VR hazard recognition with the help of artificial intelligence. We can also carry out ergonomics observations and set-up training on large-scale systems (e.g., TRML-4D, COBRA, etc.).

Through the permanent exchange and active experience of the technology, new successful ideas for possible uses within our company are continuously being generated.


HENSOLDT is a leading defence company with a global reach. HENSOLDT develops innovative and customer-specific solutions in the fields of radar, electronic warfare, avionics, and optronics. As a technology leader, we expand our portfolio continuously to combat a wide range of threats. With more than 6,400 employees, HENSOLDT generated revenues of 1.5 billion euros in 2021. HENSOLDT is listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.
