Hensoldt completes first test flight of multi-mission airborne radar

10th June 2020 - 17:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Hensoldt has completed the first flight test of its airborne multi-mission surveillance radar PrecISR1000, the company stated on 10 June.

The radar proved to be stable and generated a huge amount of high-quality reconnaissance data include SAR imagery during its first operational flight. It is capable of detecting, tracking and classifying over 1000 objects making it an effective tool for searching for specific targets.

The compact design enables it to be located outside the airframe, which makes the process of integration with a range of rotary-wing, fixed-wing and UAV aircraft platforms fairly easy.

Given its capabilities, Hensoldt’s PrecISR1000 has been selected by a provider of airborne special mission operations to be installed underneath Pilatus PC-12 aircraft.

PrecISR is also available in ground configuration for ISR missions and can characterise fixed targets using moving target indication and synthetic aperture radar in a ‘spot or strip’ mode.
