Sensor options supplier HENSOLDT is placing its newest applied sciences in sensor knowledge fusion and evaluation on the service of elevated safety for the Eurofighter. By combining its Spectrum Battle Administration Suite (SBMS), which creates a state of affairs image from an enormous quantity of Digital Warfare (EW) knowledge, with a sophisticated model of the analysis software program of the Eurofighter self-protection system “Praetorian”, the so-called Digital Warfare Knowledge Analyser (EWDA), HENSOLDT has developed a instrument that permits mission knowledge of the Eurofighter to be evaluated a lot quicker and extra exactly and for use for programming future missions. Trendy digital self-protection methods, comparable to that of the Eurofighter, require system settings that inform the system on which frequencies threats are to be anticipated and which jamming strategies needs to be used. These system settings are taken from recorded reconnaissance knowledge from earlier missions. The extra correct and complete this mission knowledge could be evaluated, the higher the self-protection system could be programmed for the following mission.

“The quantity of knowledge that trendy sensors ship as we speak can solely be partially utilised with as we speak’s analysis mechanisms,” says Roland Castor Head of Spectrum Dominance at HENSOLDT. “With the assistance of our Spectrum Battle Administration Suite, we had been in a position to develop an automatic answer that proves its price, particularly within the demanding operational situations of the Eurofighter. The assertiveness and safety of plane and pilots is thus improved as soon as once more.”


The SBMS software program allows mission planning of Digital Warfare (EW) operations primarily based on reconnaissance outcomes from radar and radio indicators (Sign Intelligence, SIGINT). It’s repeatedly additional developed by HENSOLDT and is in use in a number of NATO and EU international locations. As a result of its modular software program structure, totally different workflows could be tailored to totally different items. The SBMS gives a unified software program answer for all EW necessities of contemporary armed forces with built-in workflows starting from mission planning, management of reconnaissance and command of jamming methods to database administration and knowledge evaluation.

Then again, the EWDA software program ensures the evaluation of in depth flight knowledge within the Eurofighter with a deal with Digital Help Measures (ESM) and Digital Countermeasures (ECM). Artificial laboratory assessments are evaluated in actual time and sophisticated post-fight evaluation is supported. The outcomes make sure the focused and mission-specific optimisation of system parameters within the Eurofighter self-protection system. HENSOLDT already provides the EloKa analysis software program EWDA and SBMS. These shall be delivered in a brand new model in the direction of the top of the 12 months. HENSOLDT is a number one firm within the European defence business with world attain. Primarily based in Taufkirchen close to Munich, the corporate develops full sensor options for defence and safety purposes. As a expertise chief, HENSOLDT drives the event of defence electronics and optronics and is repeatedly increasing its portfolio primarily based on progressive approaches to knowledge administration, robotics and cyber safety. With greater than 6,400 staff, HENSOLDT achieved a turnover of 1.5 billion euros in 2021.
