Hensoldt Examines Potential for Enhanced Eurofighter Self-Protection

Multi-Year Study Examines Potential for PRAETORIAN eVo

The Bundeswehr has commissioned Hensoldt to examine potential modernisation and performance enhancement for the Eurofighter’s self-protection system in a multi-year study, the company announced on 2 August.

Aimed at ensuring system assertiveness and aircraft survivability against even the most modern threats, such as long-range integrated air defence systems and highly agile radars, the Bundeswehr mandate also calls for attention to be paid to new cyber security requirements, the use of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components and the new Eurofighter design and development standards. The results of the investigations will be worked out in close cooperation with the German Air Force and regularly presented to the customer through hardware and software demonstrations.

While the existing system is being continuously improved with various individual measures, preparations for a comprehensive weapon system update have begun in the Eurofighter Long Term Evolution (LTE) programme, to ensure operational capability well into the 21st century and for future adaptations. To this end, the EuroDASS consortium (Leonardo UK, Elettronica, Indra and Hensoldt) has developed a redesign of the system under the name PRAETORIAN eVolution (eVo for short).

The existing PRAETORIAN system protects the Eurofighter from radar- and infrared-guided missiles. The integrated sensor and jamming equipment also provides a precise situation picture and enables state-of-the-art electronic deception techniques. Hensoldt has been a member of EuroDass for decades and is closely involved in the development of PRAETORIAN eVo. As a specialist in EloKa applications, Hensoldt has supplied self-protection suites for helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft to customers all over the world. The company’s KALAETRON is a fully digitalised product family of sensors and jammers for electromagnetic signals.
