HENSOLDT, civilian and military sensor solutions provider, has introduced a fully integrated signals intelligence (SIGINT) system named ‘Kalaetron Integral’ onto the market, which enables the detection of communications and radar signals in an unprecedented bandwidth by the same hardware. ‘Kalaetron Integral’, part of HENSOLDT’s Kalaetron electronic warfare product family, was presented to the public for the first time at Paris Air Show.
“With Kalaetron Integral we are giving an answer to the challenges SIGINT systems are facing”, said head of Spectrum Dominance/Airborne Solutions, Celia Pelaz. “Communications and radar frequency bands are merging more and more, so that SIGINT systems need to cover large bandwidths and to distinguish different types of signals with utmost precision.”
“Due to its fully digital design, Kalaetron Integral detects emitters incredibly quickly over an extremely wide frequency range from 40 MB to 40 GB. By means of automated resource allocation and software-defined tasks, communications and radar signals can be monitored by the same hardware, i.e. Kalaetron Integral fulfils missions which currently require the deployment of several specific COMINT and ELINT systems. It uses artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to identify new threat patterns from a huge amount of collected raw data and establishes a comprehensive situation picture in near-realtime,” the company said in a statement.
As a modular system, the new Kalaetron product line is available in a wide variety of configurations, giving answers to different customer requirements. It can be installed on a wide variety of platforms such as business jets, transport aircraft and UAVs.
