Possessing a wide range of products for sensor solutions, HENSOLDT announced on January 16 the successful conclusion of the flight tests carried out for its detection and avoidance radar, which it developed specifically against the collision risk of UAVs with other air platforms.

The tests were performed on behalf of BAAINBw, the German military procurement authority, in collaboration with the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) in Brunswick, and involved the use of a radar placed in a Dornier Do 228 aircraft. During the tests, the radar successfully detected aircraft approaching from different angles and altitudes, thereby demonstrating its performance under real conditions.

Developed for use in both military and civil UAVs, the system can also function as a weather radar. The radar uses active electronically scanned array (AESA) technology, and can detect multiple targets simultaneously. A number of additional flight tests are envisaged in the upcoming period.
