HENSOLDT develops jamming system to neutralise enemy air defences

Sensor solutions provider HENSOLDT has achieved a technological leap in the development of products for the electronic protection of aircraft. By combining artificial intelligence, digitisation and Active Electronically Scanning Array (AESA) technologies, HENSOLDT has developed a jamming system ("jammer") called 'Kalaetron Attack', which jams even the latest Russian radars, protecting aircraft against enemy air defence.

Kalaetron Attack has recently proven its effectiveness in current threat scenarios in extensive ground tests. It is part of HENSOLDT's fully digital 'Kalaetron' product family, which is used in the NH90's self-protection system and for signals intelligence with the German Armed Forces, among others.

"The products of contemporary airborne electronic warfare are available in Germany," says Celia Pelaz, Chief Strategy Officer and Head of the Spectrum Dominance Division at HENSOLDT. "At HENSOLDT, we are bundling these capabilities in order to develop - if necessary, in cooperation with other companies - a solution under national sovereignty. By combining the latest technologies, we have managed to optimise the interference performance in a targeted manner. This makes 'Kalaetron Attack' scalable at any time for deployments as a self-protection system or the roles of an escort and stand-off jammer."

The core elements of the system are a fully digitised, broadband sensor and effector, an electronically controllable jammer and a condensed structure of the electronic components only made possible by metallic 3D printing. This has made it possible to configure the jammer in such a way that it can be easily integrated into pod formats commonly used worldwide and various flying platforms but can also be scaled for sea and land applications. The next development step planned for summer 2022 is to install it in an aircraft in order to confirm the already outstanding laboratory results in realistic flight tests.

HENSOLDT is already involved in the production and further development of the Eurofighter's self-protection system as part of the EuroDASS consortium.

  1. The continuation of the Anxiety and suffering of millions of people in the countries of the world, and this is due to the dependence of aircraft manufacturers on the manufacture of unintelligent aircraft, because unintelligent aircraft depend on human leadership of the aircraft.
    Therefore, we ask technicians and engineers to create new engineering maps for the manufacture of smart, self-driving aircraft that rely on artificial intelligence programs, and to choose the passenger geographical locations required in the live map program and geographical locations in self-driving aircraft.
    Here are the problems and suffering of millions of people due to companies’ reliance on unintelligent human-led planes
    1/Unsmart aircraft are unfit aircraft in the lives of millions of people, due to the financial costs that are not commensurate with the difficult financial conditions in the lives of the majority of young men and women.
    2/Unintelligent planes bring suffering, anxiety and psychological troubles because travelers have to travel long distances and search for taxis in order to reach the airport
    3/Unintelligent planes bring annoying problems and troubles, long distances, queues, and crowding for humans in order to obtain a passport and book airline tickets.
    4/There are millions of young people suffering from the pain of sadness, nostalgia, depression and constant anxiety, and this is because they did not reach their mistresses in distant countries, and this is because of the problems mentioned in unintelligent planes.
    So a person needs the services of a personal self-driving plane in order to transport a person from his home directly to the home of the woman he loves in a country far away.
    (We require engineers and technicians to create engineering designs and fabricate autonomous aircraft (self-driving) using advanced artificial intelligence software and to select passengers for remote geographic location in live map imaging software)
    Please send these four complaints as well as requests to officials and workers in the aircraft industry
