Very short-range air defence VSHORAD and C-UAS radar

SPEXER 2000 3D MkIII HENSOLDT very short range air defence VSHORAD and C UAS radar 003


One of the things the current conflicts have taught us is that the military hardware we are used to, especially ground-based machines like tanks and troop carriers, are utterly useless when no anti-air support is around. The sky is filled with drones, loitering munitions, and other types of aerial threats. That were less the case a few years back.

Therefore, HENSOLDT optimised its SPEXER 2000 3D MkIII radar to give the soldier the best situational awareness in any mission. SPEXER 2000 supports the soldier with a multi-mission air defence solution that can keep up with a unit on the move closing out the danger of a static battle. SPEXER 2000 is the latest innovative product of the SPEXER radar family. It is HENSOLDT’s answer to the new threat scenarios, while porting the capabilities from classical threats and focusing on the detection and classification of all targets in parallel. It contributes to the local air picture and turns the classical and future threats into targets.
