HENSOLDT and MyDefence announced their cooperation on the delivery of a counter-UAS system for an unnamed Southeast Asian customer, at Singapore Air Show 2020.
The system will be integrated into anti-drone vehicles to monitor the challenging airspace of urban environments. The order marks another chapter in the success story of HENSOLDT’s modular counter-UAS system Xpeller and MyDefence’ robust RF-sensors and C2-system.
“Drones are becoming smaller and smaller. In an urban environment, where potential targets are grouped closely together, monitoring the airspace to detect unmanned threats and take action is a crucial and challenging task,” explains Markus Wolf, Head of Sales and Business Development at HENSOLDT Ventures. “Our modular approach enables us to easily join forces with partners like MyDefence to offer the customer a perfectly tailored solution for his needs.”
The system for the civilian customer consists of one unit of HENSOLDT’s Spexer 360 radar. MyDefence from Denmark adds their networked Watchdog 200 Direction Finding radio frequency drone detector (WD200) as well as the command and control alarm system. The system will be used in an urban environment, a new challenge for the counter-UAS solution. The counter-UAS suite allows the user to see a threat detected by the system on a map with an overlay of chosen zones. An alarm is instantly displayed on the server screen.
