Consortia and cooperations

Partnerships for a safer world

For HENSOLDT, the key to a technologically sovereign European Union lies in greater cooperation. This represents the only way to develop critical capabilities and ensure a competitive industrial base in the European Union. Therefore, HENSOLDT takes part in many defence development programmes initiated by the European Union, the NATO or some of its member states.

In cooperation with industry partners, our company realizes complex key projects, striving for a strong Europe and paving the way for a safer world.

As such, HENSOLDT has evolved into a renowned and trustworthy partner for sensor solutions, also as a result of intelligent partnership strategy and cooperation with local providers.


The Future Combat Air System (FCAS) is the largest European defence program of our time. On the German side, HENSOLDT leads a consortium, which holds national responsibility for the FCAS sensor prototype and its networked sensors and effectors.
