PrecISR™, HENSOLDT’s new family of Airborne Multi-Mission Surveillance Radars, offers high performance in a compact design. The superior performance of PrecISR™ enables Airborne Operators to accomplish large area surveillance and a complete surveillance mission in one flight pass, resulting in an unrivalled level of situational awareness with significant flight cost savings.
PrecISR™ translates latest achievements in active array and digital receiver technology into a scalable high-performance sensor which can be installed aboard helicopters, UAVs and fixed-wing mission aircraft. Due to its software-defined radar modes and electronic beam steering, PrecISR™ can fulfil different tasks virtually at the same time. It is able to detect, track and classify more than a thousand objects and thus literally find the ‘needle in a haystack’. Because of its compact design and the fact that all radar related components are located outside of the airframe, the airborne platform integration of PrecISR™ is significantly simplified compared to other radars. Its superior precision and target accuracy make it the sensor of choice for surveillance of large maritime and coastal areas.
PrecISR™ Ground surveillance capabilities includes reconnaissance and classification of fixed targets using Moving Target Indication (MTI), Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) operating in Spot or Strip mode.
For maritime surveillance it classifies the maritime targets through Maritime Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (ISAR) operation, Range Profiling and MTI.
Air surveillance capabilities includes detecting and intercepting of low flying aircraft, Gathering information on direction and speed of a target for correlation with data from other sensors, e.g. ADS-B and EO/IR and MT.
“HENSOLDT capitalizes on decades of experience in airborne and space radar,” explains HENSOLDT CEO Thomas Müller.
“Thus we were able to translate our unique radar capabilities into an innovative product which opens up new capabilities for airborne surveillance missions,” he added.
