Hensoldt has delivered the seventeenth Aerodrome Surveillance Radar, Series (ASR-S) radar to the German procurement authority BAAINBw and the Air Mobility Training Centre in Celle-Wietzenbruch.

The company is installing these radars to enable air traffic control modernisation at German military airfields.

Hensoldt is delivering the ASR radar under a €250m contract received from BAAINBw to supply 20 radar systems.

The latest ASR radar was subjected to a final acceptance test before being handed over to training centre commander colonel Jörn Rohmann.

The company’s systems are expected to replace the country’s ageing radar systems currently in service for military air traffic control.

In a statement, Hensoldt said: “The new radars are being used for approach control at the airfields themselves and for airspace surveillance within a radius of more than 100km in order to safely coordinate military flight movements with civil air traffic.”
