HENSOLDT Counter-UAV System – Xpeller
Xpeller – Dangerous high flyers – The new threat from the air.
HENSOLDT’s Xpeller counter-UAV system provides protection from the ever-increasing threat posed by over-the-counter drones, both in the military and the civil sector.
The name of Xpeller is derived from the idea of expelling an intruder. HENSOLDT has developed a powerful modular system by adding radio detectors and countermeasures to some of its existing and proven technologies for monitoring airspace using radar and cameras.
This system can locate and classify even small hobby drones at a range of several kilometres. High-resolution cameras make it possible to decide whether there is a serious threat. If so, the threat can then be countered by choosing appropriate countermeasures.
With its Xpeller family of products for the detection of, and defence against, commercially available drones HENSOLDT is proving that this can be done differently and much more effectively.
The special feature is that the individual components of the modular system come almost exclusively from the portfolio of the HENSOLDT Group. This combined expertise permits the individual components to be used optimally and ensures the maximum performance of the overall system.

How sensor fusion is disrupting ground operations – Shaping the new battlefield.
When developing any next-generation platform, ensuring that it delivers information superiority is vital. Gone are the days when each platform operated within its own ecosystem and delivered information retrospectively – operators now expect a complete situational awareness picture delivered to them with a live view of what is going on around them. In short, MGCS will be a game changer in combat operations. A completely integrated system like this ensures information superiority and will ultimately make land forces more lethal. HENSOLDT already has the know-how to deliver an integrated sensor fusion network. Its state-of-the-art See Through Armour System (SETAS) provides a 360-degree view to the crew, even in areas the users are not looking at.
SETAS can integrate and communicate with other systems, for example sharing geo data-based objects to a neighbouring vehicle, and this data can be collected from the different areas of the battlefield and fused together.
SETAS is an ITAR-free, ruggedized, day and night high performance local area observation system for any type of armoured vehicles. This high resolution electro optical vision system gives each crew member the possibility to stay secure under hatch without losing full visual situational awareness, 360° around the vehicle. Threats like snipers or RPG can be detected within their operating range. Spexer 2000 3D MKIII – multi mission radar for C-UAS, Very Short Range Air Defense (VSHORAD) and artillery support e,g, adjustment/registration of friendly fire – HENSOLDT Spexer Radars with high Doppler resolution provides an exceptional capability to separate between moving targets and clutter.

HENSOLDT Sensors for Ground based Air and Missile Defence
Air Defence Monitor airspace – direct defensive systems. Effective air defence, which can protect cities, critical infrastructure and a military actor’s own military units from attacks by enemy air forces and missiles, must use modern, long-range radar systems to monitor the airspace and, if necessary, to precisely direct defensive weapons and control fire.
Ground-based air defence – State-of-the air defence radars – Our air defence radars are part of a family of products which include ship- as well as ground-based sensors. Thus they benefit from shorter production cycles, continuous product improvements and economies of scale in terms of maintenance and training. The HENSOLDT radar family offers ground based air surveillance systems for short and medium-range air defence for the protection of ground forces. The Spexer 2000 3D MKIII – multi mission radar for C-UAS, Very Short Range Air Defense (VSHORAD) and artillery support e,g, adjustment/registration of friendly fire – HENSOLDT Spexer Radars with high Doppler resolution provides an exceptional capability to separate between moving targets and clutter.
TwInvis is a passive radar that adds a new dimension to the world of surveillance and situational awareness. It offers decisive operational advantages: it cannot be located due to the absence of any transmitted energy and it does not need any emissions from targets to locate them. In the military field, TwInvis combines several advantages. In addition to its high mobility, the system itself remains invisible and therefore cannot be jammed or eliminated in a targeted action. At the same time, it can also be used to discover stealth aircraft which, due to their low observable technology, have until now remained undetectable for conventional radar systems.
The TRS-4D/TRML-4D Radar Family encompasses HENSOLDT’s latest members of C-Band (NATO G-Band) state-of-the-art naval and ground tactical radars. The members of the TRS-4D/TRML-4D Radar Family provide multi-functional surveillance and target acquisition offering recognized tactical pictures and weapon assignment.
