German Sensor solution provider HENSOLDT announced that it is collaborating with Israel’s Rafael to further develop its "Kalaetron Attack" jamming system for use on board naval vessels.

According to Hensoldt, the fully digital system has proven to be very effective in neutralizing air defense radars in several test campaigns. Now HENSOLDT is using the knowledge gained from land and airborne tests to develop a capability for the electronic protection of naval vessels. To this end, HENSOLDT has entered into a cooperation with Israeli Rafael Advanced Defense Systems.

Together, the partners initially wanted to offer an electronic countermeasures (ECM) system for naval vessels in Germany, which is based on the Digital Shark ECM system and a decoy system (C-GEM) from Rafael.

The Kalaetron Attack jamming system is part of HENSOLDT's fully digital 'Kalaetron' product family, which is used in various forms in self-protection and signal intelligence systems by the German Armed Forces. In addition to cognitive elements of artificial intelligence, the core components are a fully digitized, broadband sensor and an electronically controllable jammer. This enables a broad spectrum of threats to be detected quickly and countered with pinpoint accuracy.
