HENSOLDT to display new air defence passive radar at IL 2024

As part of ILA 2024 HENSOLDT will present a new sensor from the Airborne Optronics sector that offers improved passive hazard detection in the infrared range, says the company.

“In Berlin, HENSOLDT will also be showing a precise image of the airspace generated by its passive radar system “Twinvis”. The system does not emit an active signal, but instead detects several transmission sources from the electromagnetic spectrum from different locations. It can also interconnect several sensors to form a sensor cluster. The transmitters and the “Twinvis” sensors can be up to 100 kilometres apart. In contrast to systems that rely on signals emitted by the target, “Twinvis” can detect targets based solely on the available spectrum.

“TRML-4D is the latest member of the HENSOLDT family of ground-based C-band (NATO G-band) air defence radars. HENSOLDT is demonstrating a state-of-the-art system that is currently being used for air defence in Ukraine. TRML-4D utilises the latest AESA (Active Electronically Scanned Array) radar technology with multiple digitally shaped beams. It is designed for short- and long-range surface-to-air detection and weapon designation. It is capable of detecting, tracking and classifying different types of air targets, with a focus on small, fast and low-flying cruise missiles and aircraft, as well as helicopters and drones. It ensures the rapid detection and tracking of around 1,500 targets within a radius of up to 250 kilometres and at an altitude of up to 30 kilometres.”
