HENSOLDT Launches New-Generation of Avionics Computers Under the "CAVION" Brand Name

Issue 111 - December 2021

Sensor and avionics solutions provider HENSOLDT is launching a family of avionics computers under the "CAVION" brand that significantly expands the performance of existing computers for mission control onboard flying platforms of all kinds. 

"CAVION" is based on a HENSOLDT proprietary development of electronic modules that enables the use of multi-core processors even in safety-critical areas while securing their aeronautical certification onboard any platform - helicopters, mission aircraft, fighter jets, or drones. Until now, the certification of multi-core processors in aerospace applications has been a major challenge. The reason is that the process flows within these multi-core processors are unpredictable. By using the new and specially developed multi-core processor boards from HENSOLDT, the computers of the "CAVION" family are significantly more powerful than the previously used generation of avionics computers, whereby great importance was attached to certifiability. The products of the "CAVION" family are available in various modular configurations for flight control of the respective aircraft, for special military applications, and as mission computers for police and rescue operations.
