European sensor house Hensoldt (Booth J77) is showing a new airborne signals intelligence (SIGINT) system for the first time here at the Singapore Airshow. The Munich-based company specializes in defense and security electronics, such as avionics computers, data links, IFF, and self-defense of aircraft.

The SIGINT system is named Kalaetron and is designed to detect both communications and radar systems. According to Hensoldt, its radar-warning function “detects and identifies threats incredibly quickly and with a very low false alarm rate, over an extremely wide frequency range."

The company is also showing another Intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) system, the multi-sensor ARGOS-II HD A1. It can be fitted with high-definition infrared and daylight cameras as well as laser rangefinders and illuminators.

Also on display are the SferiRec LCR 100 flight data recorder, the Lygarion datalink, and the MILDS missile-warning sensor.
