Sensor resolution supplier HENSOLDT has accomplished intensive floor and discipline checks with its “Kalaetron Assault” jamming system, confirming its effectiveness in opposition to enemy air defence radars of assorted sorts. The jamming system is a part of HENSOLDT’s totally digital ‘Kalaetron’ product household, which is utilized in self-protection and sign reconnaissance techniques within the German armed forces, amongst others. Measurements in varied operationally related situations present that “Kalaetron Assault” can detect even the most recent air defence radars and intrude with them by way of exactly directed jamming indicators. The effectiveness and responsiveness of the system can also be based mostly on synthetic intelligence (AI) strategies, which allow the classification of unknown threats within the discipline and the fast analysis of enormous quantities of information. In doing so, the numerous years of in-depth expertise within the improvement of jamming approaches in opposition to radars have been profitably mixed with the most recent approaches of the Edge AI method.

“Management of the electromagnetic spectrum is a vital prerequisite for data superiority, and thus the success of navy missions and the safety of 1’s personal troopers,” says Celia Pelaz, Chief Technique Officer and Head of the Spectrum Dominance Division at HENSOLDT. “Kalaetron Assault additionally makes it doable to disclaim the enemy using this spectrum – for air defence, for instance.”

Along with cognitive software program components, the core components are a completely digitised, broadband sensor and an electronically controllable jammer. Metallic 3D printing enabled a condensed design of the digital elements in order that the jammer might be simply built-in into pod codecs generally used worldwide or straight into varied flying platforms. Kalaetron Assault, as an escort jammer for the Eurofighter, due to this fact supplies the Luftwaffe with the well timed functionality switch of the ECR Twister and, on the similar time, expands the capabilities of the Eurofighter by the urgently required element of digital warfare (escort jamming) in trendy operational situations. Resulting from its scalability, the system may also be utilized in land- or ship-based functions.

HENSOLDT is a number one firm within the European defence business with international attain. Primarily based in Taufkirchen close to Munich, the corporate develops full sensor options for defence and safety functions.
