SINGAPORE – HENSOLDT and MyDefence announced their coop­er­a­tion on a deliv­ery of a counter-UAS system for an unnamed Southeast Asian cus­tomer. 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.
“Since 2014 we have worked exten­sive­ly to mature our RF sens­ing capa­bil­i­ties to detect, clas­si­fy and locate drones in urban envi­ron­ments, where the wire­less spec­trum is heav­i­ly con­gest­ed from var­i­ous types of wire­less sig­nals,” says Dan Hermansen, CEO at MyDefence. “Through our coop­er­a­tion with pris­ons, sta­di­ums and police forces we have cre­at­ed a best-in-class solu­tion that works as stand-alone as well as in larger solu­tions like Xpeller”. This was announced at the Singapore Airshow today (Feb 11).
HENSOLDT’s mod­u­lar Xpeller system proved its per­for­mance sev­er­al times in 2019, mon­i­tor­ing the G7 Summit in Biarritz, pro­tect­ing Paris Air Show in Le Bourget and secur­ing the French nation­al parade on the 14th of July in Paris. MyDefence’ RF sen­sors have been in oper­a­tional use since 2015 for mil­i­tary and civil­ian cus­tomers, and in largest num­bers it has pro­tect­ed sol­diers in the US Army at both rural and urban con­flict areas.
