At the International Radar Symposium in Ulm on 26 June, Hensoldt will present its most recent advances in sensor technology, among which will be the newly-developed TWINVIS passive radar and a collision warning radar system for drones that has recently undergone flight testing.
“Radar technology has made enormous progress in connection with digital technology and methods of artificial intelligence, which we as sensor specialists are driving forward on a massive scale,” explained the company’s Chief Technology Officer, Ryszard Bil. “As a result, we are now in a position to offer solutions for autonomous means of transport or military information acquisition that would have been unthinkable just a few years ago.”
TWINVIS will be demonstrated in live operation, integrated into a van that analyses signal echoes from radio or TV stations so as to create a recognised air picture in real time, within a 200km range, without itself emitting any signals. Also on display will be the airborne surveillance radar PrecISR, which translates the latest findings in active array antennas and digital receivers into a scalable, high-performance sensor that can be installed on helicopters, drones and special mission aircraft. A state-of-the-art radar system for air traffic control and a collision warning radar for drones will round off the company’s presentation at the conference.
Approximately 300 international experts are expected to attend this year’s Radar Symposium, organised by the German Institute of Navigation (DGON). Radar applications in the automotive, aerospace, defence and security industries, as well as in medical technology, will be discussed during the event, which promotes discussions about the latest radar technologies – including those related to future issues such as artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, Industry 4.0 and cybersecurity – between students, young academics, scientists, industry representatives and users.
