The newly formed company Hensoldt, previously known as the Electronics business unit of Airbus Defence & Space, offering key sensor technologies from a single source, is introducing itself to the public as “The new Sensor House” at AFCEA 2017 in Bonn.
Hensoldt combines various Airbus activities from the area of security and defence electronics and develops innovative products for reconnaissance and intelligence, for the protection of soldiers and for the creation of situation pictures, taking full advantage of the broad technology basis established by its predecessors such as Telefunken, Zeiss Optronics, Dornier, and Siemens Sicherungstechnik.
At AFCEA, Hensoldt presents their latest developments such as the airport surveillance radar ASR, one of the most powerful airport surveillance radars in the world, the TRS-4D naval radar system, which is currently being installed on the new German Navy frigates, and the pilot assistance system SFERION. The counter-UAV system XPELLER offers reliable protection against drones by combining several sensors with a jammer in a modular approach.
As a special highlight, Hensoldt presents their newly developed passive radar, which is capable of precisely detecting flying objects without emitting any radar signals that might betray its own position.
