Paris Air Show: Introducing HUSSAR

Franco-German industrial cooperation for ultra-lightweight missile

 

At Paris Air Show, Diehl Defence and Safran Electronics & Defence signed an agreement to jointly develop the HUSSAR tactical air-to-ground weapon system for flying platforms.

HUSSAR combines the benefits of a larger loadout with the capability to even engage time-sensitive targets. The ‘scalable effects’ warhead will be optimised for the engagement of stationary and moving targets while avoiding collateral damage in complex mission scenarios. An innovative navigation platform in conjunction with various seeker options, including semi-active laser sensor, will enable highly precise target engagement.

The missile will be carried by a smart multi-launcher that will considerably increase typical aircraft loadout with up to eight effectors. System design will focus on the requirements of current and future platforms, such as the planned Franco-German next-generation fighter aircraft (FCAS) or the European unmanned MALE (Medium Altitude Long Endurance) system.
