HENSOLDT to Showcase Broad Range of Sensor Solutions at the Dubai Airshow 2021

At the Dubai Airshow, HENSOLDT will focus on its sensor technologies in the airborne solutions domain. The sensor solutions are deployed on various platforms, including helicopters, aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles. HENSOLDT will present its airborne multi-mission surveillance radar PrecISR, along with other HENSOLDT sensors such as the ARGOS II electro-optical gimbal, which can be seamlessly integrated into the new Xplorer Mission System.

A Virtual Reality (VR) application will be on display showing operational scenarios from the HENSOLDT portfolio including its Ground Based Air Defence (GBAD) and Air Traffic Management (ATM) solution. The GBAD simulation features the TRML4-D Multi-Functional Air Surveillance and Target Acquisition Radar System. The ATM solution includes the ASR-NG air traffic control radar, the MSSR 2000 ID secondary radar, Twinvis passive radar and the Xpeller counter-UAV system for glide path and airport perimeter surveillance and drone defence. Visitors to the stand can wear the VR headset and can be part of the immersive military simulation experience.


Helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft are protected by the Airborne Missile Protection Suite AMPS, whilst the modular Kalaetron electronic warfare system provides warning against radar threats but can also be used for strategic Signals Intelligence in an enhanced configuration. Also, on display is HENSOLDT’s Mode 5-capable IFF portfolio together with avionics equipment such as crash recorders and tactical data links.

The European solutions provider will also be presenting its counter-UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) system Xpeller for 24/7 protection from illicit intrusions of UAVs over critical areas – even at long ranges. The system is highly modular and combines numerous sensors (radar, electro-optics, direction finders) and target neutralization effectors such as jammers and drone catchers through a single Command and Control (C2) system.

HENSOLDT will also showcase its Twinvis passive radar which allows an airspace to be monitored over a radius of up to 250 kilometres, without itself emitting radar signals. Mobile, and unobtrusively integrated into a small van or off-road vehicle, this radar’s possible uses are almost unlimited.

ENSOLDT is a German defence industry champion with a leading market position in Europe and global reach. Headquartered in Taufkirchen near Munich, the company develops sensor solutions for defence and security applications. As a technology leader, HENSOLDT is also continuously expanding its portfolio in the field of cyber and developing new products to combat a wide range of threats based on innovative approaches to data management, robotics and cyber security. With more than 5,600 employees, HENSOLDT achieved a turnover of 1.2 billion euros in 2020.
