Hensoldt presents new PrecISR airborne surveillance radar.


| 2018

HENSOLDT, a leading independent sensor house, is developing an innovative airborne multi-mission surveillance radar which will provide armed forces and border protection authorities with unprecedented situational awareness and extremely short reaction times, the company announced on February 26, 2018.

The software-defined radar named PrecISRTM (derived from 'precise', pronunciation: 'priˈsaiser') translates latest achievements in active array and digital receiver technology into a scaleable high-performance sensor which can be installed aboard helicopters, UAVs and fixed-wing mission aircraft. Its superior precision and target accuracy make it the sensor of choice for surveillance of large sea and coastal areas against piracy, trafficking or illicit intrusion.

"HENSOLDT capitalizes on decades of experience in airborne and space radar", explains HENSOLDT CEO Thomas Müller. "Thus we are able to translate our unique radar capabilities into an innovative product which gives defence and security forces more and better information to counter threats to their citizens' safety and well-being."

Due to its software-defined radar modes and electronic beam steering, PrecISR can fulfil different tasks virtually at the same time. It is able to detect, track and classify thousands of objects and thus literally find the 'needle in a haystack'. Because of its compact design and the fact that all power consuming parts are located outside of the airframe, the airborne platform integration of PrecISR is simplified significantly compared to other radars. PrecISR is in the full-scale development phase. A fully functional flying demonstrator is expected to exist in about one year's time and a series product in 2020.
