HENSOLDT Jamming System Proves Effectiveness in Flight Tests

Date: Issue 121 - April 2023

Sensor solution provider HENSOLDT has proven the effectiveness of its jamming system, "Kalaetron Attack", against air defence radars of various types for the first time in extended flight tests. In challenging near-mission scenarios, a demonstrator system on board a PC-12 test aircraft proved that it can detect even the latest air defence radars in flight and interfere with them by means of precisely directed jamming signals.

"Neutralising enemy air defence radars is an essential prerequisite for deploying own air forces on the modern battlefield," says Christoph Ruffner, head of the Spectrum Dominance & Airborne Solutions Division at HENSOLDT. "Our flight tests proved that Kalaetron Attack can combat ground-based threats to our air force and protect aircrews."
