HAMBURG - As part of a product demonstration on the Airbus airfield in Hamburg-Finkenwerder, HENSOLDT provided proof of the performance of its Xpeller counter-UAV system. Xpeller was designed to protect airports and other critical infrastructure.

HENSOLDT demonstrated the counter-UAV measures to representatives from the police, industrial companies, airport operators, and armed forces. The system utilizes a combination of radar, RF, and optical sensors and a targeted jammer. For this, the individual elements of the system were positioned in such a way as to ensure optimum surveillance of the whole area.

As part of the demonstration, the Xpeller was integrated into the airfield's infrastructure, proving its compatibility with all of the other local systems. Xpeller also managed to reliably detect UAVs starting from a variety of locations. The visitors considered it to be a particular success that the HENSOLDT system was able to reliably detect even extremely small UAVs at a distance of several kilometers and to identify them as threats.

The modular Xpeller product family includes various sensors such as radar, camera, and radio frequency detectors as well as direction finders and jammers. Xpeller uses sensors to detect and identify a drone and assess its threat potential at ranges from a few hundred meters up to several kilometers. Based on real-time analyses of the control signals, a jammer then interrupts the link between drone and pilot or interferes with its navigation. The modular Xpeller system concept relies on the selection of individual devices from the product family depending on customer requirements and local conditions.
