TAUFKIRCHEN, Germany. Hensoldt will supply six radars to the German Armed Force as part of Diehl Defence's IRIS-T SLM air defense system, according to a Hensoldt statement.
The order from Diehl Defence, valued in the three-digit million euro range, will see the first system delivered to the Bundeswehr next year. Hensoldt says this contract begins the European Sky Shield Initiative (ESSI), a joint venture with Diehl and Airbus aimed at bolstering national and alliance defense.
The TRML-4D uses digital radar technology and is designed to detect, track, and classify various types of aerial threats, with capabilities that include detecting small, fast, low-flying, and maneuvering cruise missiles, as well as aircraft and helicopters, the statement reads. The company adds that it is designed to rapidly identify and track around 1,500 targets within a 250 km radius.
