Hensoldt UK has launched the SPEXER 600 multi-mission, X-Band ground based surveillance radar utilising the company’s world beating SharpEye solid state transceiver technology. Building upon the excellent pedigree of well-established Hensoldt products and technologies, SPEXER 600 complements the SPEXER family of Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radars, offering a cost effective and truly crew portable field deployable solution.
Designed to meet user requirements to detect multiple threats in the modern battlefield or security environment, it offers a number of modes allowing multiple functions to be carried out by a single radar sensor. The built in tracker reduces the need for additional electronic units, making it a lightweight, crew portable unit that can be set up in a few minutes. In fixed installations the low weight allows it to be installed without any specialist masts or structures.
Controlled either locally or remotely from a command centre, SPEXER 600 can be easily networked with other sensors.

Joint Power for Europe’s Next-Generation FighterNew challenges call for new responses.

And the Next-Generation Fighter (NGF) will be an essential part of this. The NGF is expected to enter service by 2040 – powered by an engine that goes far beyond today’s capabilities.
