Hensoldt showcases new Kalaetron radar warning system

STOCKHOLM, May 13, 2019

Hensoldt, a leading Germany-based independent sensor house, is showcasing its new radar warning system ‘Kalaetron RWR’ at the Electronic Warfare Europe Conference, being held in Stockholm, Sweden.

The conference will conclude on May 15.

The new radar warning system revolutionises the protection of aircraft and helicopters from radar-guided weapons, said a company statement.

Celia Pelaz, head of the spectrum dominance / airborne solutions division, said: “With the help of the latest artificial intelligence and digital signal processing methods, our Kalaetron RWR detects radar-based threats early and reliably.

“Our new product thus increases the assertiveness of aircraft and helicopters and their survivability, especially in view of the increasingly dense signal spectrum and the growing threat posed by highly integrated air defence systems,” Pelaz added.

Due to its fully digital design, the new radar warner detects and identifies threats incredibly quickly and with a very low false alarm rate, over an extremely wide frequency range, it said.

The Kalaetron RWR uses artificial intelligence (AI) techniques to detect new threat patterns from a huge amount of collected raw data. This is especially important to identify the latest air defence radar systems that cover an extremely wide bandwidth or which hop between particular frequencies in fractions of a second.

Kalaetron thus enables fighter or transport aircraft to be protected even against upcoming anti-aircraft weapons and integrated air defence systems, while also offering great potential for adaptability to cope with future threats, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
