Innovative solutions in the fields of reconnaissance, monitoring, training, and protection round off the product range. Were presented, among others, Iris-T SLM system the Iris-T guided missile and the HPEM effectors.

Air defense systems are used to protect the population, important buildings, objects as well as ground troops against attacks from the air. Particularly ground-based air defense is capable of providing continuous area protection over the long term. For the Bundeswehr´s Tactical Air Defence System (TLVS), Diehl Defence developed the surface-launched IRIS-T SL, an upgraded version of the IRIS-T missile equipping fighter aircraft of numerous countries worldwide. In combination with various radar and command systems, IRIS-T SL offers the capabilities and benefits of an advanced air defense system. An entire IRIS-T SLM system was tested successfully for the first time in 2014 in the presence of international representatives.

The IRIS-T guided missile was developed as aircraft armament for air-to-air missions within a European cooperation program.
The combination of thrust vector and aerodynamic control provides the missile with extremely high agility. An additional technological leap was achieved with the imaging IR seeker head in conjunction with intelligent image processing. Target designation is accomplished by airborne radar or via the pilot's helmet sight. IRIS-T´s outstanding features even permit engaging targets behind the aircraft as well as interception of opponents`missiles.

HPEM (High-Power Electro-Magnetics) effectors offer the possibility of disturbing the operation of electronic systems by means of interference pulses. The non-lethal effectors can be used to protect armed forces against Improvised Explosive Devices (IED), to stop getaway vehicles in moving traffic without employing physical force and to prevent unauthorized access to critical security areas. Moreover, HPEM effectors can counter small, unmanned aerial vehicles in the vicinity.

Diehl Defence delivers high-tech equipment for defense. The company is one of the global technology leaders in the development and production of guided missiles and ammunition for armies, air forces, and navies. Moreover, Diehl Defence also offers advanced system solutions for ground-based air defense.
