At Paris Air Show, Diehl Defence and Safran Electronics & Defence signed an agreement to jointly develop the HUSSAR tactical air-to-ground weapon system for flying platforms.

HUSSAR combines the benefits of a larger loadout with the capability to even engage time-sensitive targets. The 'scalable effects' warhead will be optimised for the engagement of stationary and moving targets while avoiding collateral damage in complex mission scenarios. An innovative navigation platform in conjunction with various seeker options, including semi-active laser sensor, will enable highly precise target engagement.

The missile will be carried by a smart multi-launcher that will considerably increase typical aircraft loadout with up to eight effectors. System design will focus on the requirements of current and future platforms, such as the planned Franco-German next-generation fighter aircraft (FCAS) or the European unmanned MALE (Medium Altitude Long Endurance) system.

HUSSAR is basically designed for multi-platform use on fighter aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles, featuring efficient and fast mission accomplishment, independently of the flight direction. The cooperation between Diehl Defence and Safran Electronics & Defence provides advantageous synergies for the joint project and is planned as Franco-German cooperation in accordance with the Aachen Treaty.
