Italian car producer Iveco Defence Automobiles (IDV) and sensor options supplier HENSOLDT and resented the Navy Utility Automobile (MUV) idea demonstrator at EUROSATORY 2022 in Paris, the results of their cooperation thus far. For the primary time, the MUV will current a modular sensor fusion platform that can be utilized within the civilian and navy sectors for surveillance and reconnaissance in addition to for self-protection and convoy safety. At EUROSATORY 2022, HENSOLDT and IDV introduced the joint MUV answer, which provides modularity, precision and pace to make sure the absolute best situational awarenes.

“The cooperation with IDV within the subject of MUV idea demonstrator is immediately associated to our portfolio growth. Russia’s conflict towards Ukraine reveals how vital networked high-performance sensor expertise and optical techniques are for equipping our armed forces in keeping with the instances,” mentioned Andreas Hülle Head of the Optronics & Landsolutions Division and Managing Director of HENSOLDT Optronics GmbH.


The system structure gives automated info processing that helps the person in decision-making and ensures operational readiness below all situations. The idea of the MUV idea demonstrator is an all-terrain 7-ton-chassis from IDV with a most payload of 4 tons. A sensor suite from HENSOLDT is put in on it, with the SETAS, MUSS, Radio Route Finder and S3 MIMO-Radar techniques. All techniques are related by the Central Data Processing Unit (CIPU), which kinds the spine of the sensor suite. Via the sensor knowledge community, HENSOLDT creates full situational consciousness with its Sensor Suite.

Potential prospects can configure their private suite in response to their needs by way of the modular construction of the person techniques. The benefit of the MUV idea demonstrator lies within the mixture of the networked HENSOLDT sensor suite with the extremely cellular, dependable and versatile vehicular platform from IDV. With the car, there may be now for the primary time a turnkey answer that mixes adaptive detection and classification functionality with the options of a car particularly designed for a variety of duties.

IDV, a model of Iveco Group, is devoted to delivering revolutionary automotive and safety options to satisfy the wants of navy prospects worldwide. The corporate manufactures specialist logistic, protected, and armoured autos in its facility in Bolzano in Northern Italy, in addition to advertising Iveco’s full industrial vary, tailored as mandatory to satisfy the calls for of the navy person. In consequence, IDV has a full vary of autos to satisfy a broad spectrum of defence functions.

HENSOLDT is a number one firm within the European defence trade with world attain. Primarily based in Taufkirchen close to Munich, the corporate develops full sensor options for defence and safety functions. As a expertise chief, HENSOLDT drives the event of defence electronics and optronics and is repeatedly increasing its portfolio based mostly on revolutionary approaches to knowledge administration, robotics and cyber safety.
