PrecISR passes acceptance test
The PrecISR airborne multi-mission surveillance radar from Hensoldt has passed factory acceptance tests in an online demonstration for launch customer QinetiQ GmbH.
Hensoldt was selected in June 2020 by QinetiQ GmbH to install PrecISR 1000 in a radome underneath a modified Pilatus PC-12 aircraft on airborne special mission operations.
‘Due to its software-defined radar modes and electronic beam steering, PrecISR can fulfil different tasks virtually at the same time,’ Hensoldt noted in a 10 March announcement.
The compact design enables it to be located outside the airframe, which simplifies integration with a range of rotary-wing, fixed-wing and UAV platforms.
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.
