Brazil Orders HENSOLDT Xpeller

Two Systems for Drone Defence

HENSOLDT has recently received an order from Brazil for two Xpeller systems to be used for counter-UAS (C-UAS) or ‘drone defence’ missions. The order is valued at over €1 million, the company announced on 6 October.

This is the first order under a framework agreement with the Brazilian customer. The contract was preceded by live tests following the first drone defence symposium, during which HENSOLDT demonstrated the capabilities of the modular Xpeller system with a multidisciplinary team from Europe, South Africa and Latin America. “We made a good impression in terms of system installation and configuration speed, detection performance and protection against intruding drones,” commented Luis Guerén, Regional Marketing Manager for Latin America.

The Xpeller variants being procured consist of a customer-optimised combination of EO/IR sensor technology, radar, RF detection as well as jamming as a countermeasure to defend against intruding drones.
