Diehl Defence & Hensoldt have agreed to intensify their cooperation in the field of ground-based air defence, the companies write in a press release. Based on latest technologies, the plan is to offer improved capabilities against new and emerging threats. The companies thereby intend to make a contribution to addressing the changed threat situation for Germany and in Europe.
Diehl Defence and Hensoldt already work together in the field of ground-based air defence systems. In its medium-range system (IRIS-T SLM), Diehl Defence has integrated the battle management standard software IBMS-FC from Airbus, as well as active and passive radars from Hensoldt, transferred them to series production and already delivered them to an export customer. The IRIS-T SLM missiles are part of Diehl Defence’s IRIS-T product family.
IRIS-T SLM can be supplemented by elements of the short-range version IRIS-T SLS. This is already under contract in several European countries and is in operational use in Sweden, in order to also meet the requirements for so-called short-range and very short-range protection (NNbS). For this purpose, Diehl Defence has already presented a further developed variant which is under contract to an export customer.
