Spectrum Dominance

Dominating the information space

Spectrum Dominance activities reflect the fact that military superiority can no longer be solely achieved with a physical presence, e.g. by tanks, aircraft, warships. Rather, information about the situation in the area of operations, about one's own and the enemy forces plays an increasingly decisive role.The main prerequisites for this are highly specialised sensors and intelligent software that processes the collected raw data. Such systems based on artificial intelligence create completely new capabilities for the early detection of threats and for the protection of one's own forces in complex scenarios.

In response to this development HENSOLDT has created the Spectrum Dominance field of competence, in which the existing capabilities and disciplines of electronic warfare are combined through new solutions. Information is not just collected but is also processed in such a way that it guarantees the customer's information superiority - using modular, scalable and tailor-made solutions. With a competence centre in Germany and in South Africa, HENSOLDT is using its global presence to meet specific customer requirements.

Digitalization, big data and cyber technologies are inherent to the cyberspace as well as the electromagnetic spectrum. Current networks are becoming more wireless so the boundaries between cyberspace and the electromagnetic spectrum are going to disappear. Spectrum Dominance offers solutions not only for conventional and advanced electronic warfare but also for signal intelligence and cyber operations. Hardware development and artificial intelligence inside HENSOLDT electronics (æ) are core parts of our future-oriented technologies at Spectrum Dominance.

Electronic Support / SIGINT

Sensing of the electromagnetic spectrum

Gaining strategic advantages thanks to ever more powerful sensors, the collection of data does not represent the greatest challenge today, but rather its meaningful processing and evaluation.

They detect communication and radar signals, identify the originators and create a comprehensive overview of the situation in real time.

Receivers

Highly agile, modern radar systems use large frequency ranges and overlap with communication signals from civil and military systems in the electromagnetic spectrum and in urban terrain. This significantly complicates the correct detection and localization of emitters.

In addition, there is not always sufficient prior knowledge about potential threats in the electromagnetic spectrum. These changed framework conditions require new answers. Answers only a broadband digital radar warner can provide.

Protecting the crews is a decisive factor when using ground vehicles and aircraft. For many years now, HENSOLDT has offered very modern and scalable solutions for this purpose, 1.e. for protection from guided missiles and laser-based weapons systems. These have already proven themselves in many missions of numerous forces.

Disrupt - Deny - Degrade - Deceive

Spectrum superiority and more advanced intelligence are the key elements needed to build an accurate situational awareness picture. The challenges of working in dense signal scenario (military + civil) and new, yet known military hostile signals are a given. Protecting the forces is a decisive factor for Air, Sea and Land Forces.

For many years now, HENSOLDT has offered very modern and scalable solutions for this purpose, i.e. for protection from guided missiles and laser-based weapons systems.

Electronic Warfare Systems

TEWS
The primary purpose of the Tactical Electronic Warfare system is to support the battlefield commander in tactical decision making through the collection of enemy communications information. The secondary purpose of the system is to supply intercepted information to the strategic domain for processing, validation, analysis and decision making. Collected transmission data consisting of intercepts with Audio and IF recordings and Direction Finding LOBs can be processed either at the local ESM station or at the central Operations Control Centre. This System is just for electronic warfare landbased applications.
