Hensoldt details Spexer radar orders

11th May 2017 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Hensoldt has received orders worth around $43 million for the Spexer 2000 ground surveillance radar from unnamed customers in the Middle East and North Africa region since the beginning of 2017, the company announced on 4 May.

The Spexer 2000 radar is designed for border and coastal surveillance, the protection of critical infrastructure, and battlefield surveillance. The radar has high doppler and velocity resolution and strong clutter suppression, enabling the reliable detection, tracking and classification of even small and slowly moving targets such as pedestrians; as well as fast objects such as guided missiles.

A camera mounted on top of the radar can be added to identify suspicious objects, ensuring a high level of situational awareness to provide border guards and security forces with additional reaction time.

The 2017 orders total around 50 units.

Thomas Müller, CEO of Hensoldt, said: 'Spexer 2000 is based on the latest active electronically scanned array technology with electronic beam scanning. This means that several operating modes or radar missions are possible at the same time, dramatically increasing the radar's detection capabilities. As a result, one Spexer radar can replace several conventional radar systems.'
