Globally renowned sensor solutions specialist, HENSOLDT has successfully passed the Factory Acceptance Test of its new airborne multi-mission surveillance radar, PrecISR.
In an online demonstration conducted, the PrecISR 1000 airborne multi-mission surveillance radar proved its capabilities to the customer, QinetiQ GmbH, an international provider of airborne special missions operations, based out of Möchengladbach, in Germany.

Approximately a year ago, HENSOLDT was awarded a contract to deliver the PrecISR 1000 multi-mission surveillance radar to QinetiQ GmbH for installation in a radome underneath a Pilatus PC-12 modified to a special mission aircraft, without significant modifications at the air frame.
The radar data is controlled and displayed by a HENSOLDT EuroNav7 mission system, which is already in operation. PrecISR translates latest achievements in active array and digital receiver technology into a scalable high-performance sensor which can be installed aboard helicopters, UAVs and fixed-wing mission aircraft.
Efficient object detection, tracking and classification
Due to its software-defined radar modes and electronic beam steering, the PrecISR airborne multi-mission surveillance radar can fulfill a range of different tasks virtually, at the same time. It is able to detect, track and classify thousands of objects and thus, literally find the ‘needle in a haystack’.
Because of its compact design and the fact that all its parts are located outside of the airframe, the airborne platform integration of PrecISR is simplified significantly, when compared to other radars in the market. The radar's superior precision and target accuracy make it the sensor of choice for surveillance of large sea and coastal areas, against the threat of piracy, trafficking or illicit intrusion activities.
