Sensor solution provider HENSOLDT and ERA, a provider of passive surveillance systems for air traffic control, air defence and electronic warfare, announced their strategic partnership to drive the advancement of air surveillance and defence capabilities. This collaboration is a response to the insights gained from recent conflicts in Europe, emphasizing the need for cutting-edge technologies to enhance national and European security, says the press release.
The primary objective of this partnership is to jointly offer the Passive Surveillance System VERA-NG to the German Luftwaffe. HENSOLDT and ERA will leverage their expertise to develop an integrated infrastructure solution based on the state-of-the-art VERA-NG system and HENSOLDT Passive Radar Twinvis technology. This means the combination of passive technologies Passive ESM Tracker (VERA-NG by ERA) and Passive Coherent Locator (Twinvis by HENSOLDT). Data of both systems can be fused to a deep integrated air picture. The two technologies complement each other perfectly. While VERA-NG is designed to detect active emissions from targets of interest at long range, targets do not have to emit signals for the passive radar Twinvis at a shorter range. Through this combination, a completely passive air picture can be created. This synergistic approach will provide an unprecedented level of passive surveillance capability, contributing significantly to future air surveillance and air defence systems.
The VERA-NG system is renowned for its excellence in real-time surveillance and reconnaissance capability in air, maritime and land domain with a track of proven references for NATO and ally countries.
