The complex requirements imposed on short and very short-range air defence have become much more complex in recent years. Both quantitatively and qualitatively, the air threat continues to mutate and multiply.
Increasingly, the emphasis is on unmanned air vehicles and precision guided munitions that are smaller, faster and more agile than ever; only the most sophisticated air defence systems can provide protection against these threats.
Rheinmetall Defence's air defence division is one of the world's foremost makers of advanced air defence systems. The company leads the global market in automatic cannon-based air defence, and is the only system supplier able to offer fire control technology, automatic 35mm cannon, integrated guided missiles and Ahead airburst ammunition, all from a single source.
The ground forces of over 40 nations count on Rheinmetall's state-of-the-art air defence solutions.
Fully automated and extremely effective, our high-performance systems are ideal to protect military and civil high-value assets from modern symmetric and asymmetric threats. Thanks to the company's Ahead technology, they can take out even the smallest targets.
We offer customer-tailored solutions for tactical and operative air defence networks with multi spectrum sensor netting.
