Singapore’s HTX (Home Team Science and Technology Agency) has partnered with HENSOLDT, a provider of sensor solutions for electronic warfare, to accelerate the production of Counter UAV Systems (CUAS) for urban security.

HENSOLDT’s Z:ASSESS software and cutting-edge Multi-Sensors Data Fusion (MSDF) will be incorporated into a rapid deployable CUAS system as part of the collaboration.

The CUAS suite, designed to provide real-time threat detection and mapping, includes surveillance radar, EO/IR cameras, jammers, and the seamless integration of additional sensors to form a modular and scalable concept.

HENSOLDT say that this offers users a comprehensive view of identified threats overlaid on chosen zones, and is adaptable for temporary protection during major events, as well as for permanent deployment.

The system was showcased for the first time during the Milipol Asia-Pacific–TechX Summit 2024, at the HTX Pavilion.

HENSOLDT state that the collaboration represents a significant step in addressing the complex security landscape associated with unmanned aerial systems (UAS) in urban areas, signifying a shared commitment to advancing security measures and responding proactively to evolving threats.

The partnership comes as a response to the issues arising from over-the-counter drones. Combining HENSOLDT Singapore’s specialized software expertise, system integration skills, and operational insights from HTX, the collaboration aims to deliver an integrated solution that meets the unique demands of an urban environment and drive innovation in CUAS technology, increasing security and protection against emerging threats.

Ines Maiwald, Head of Business Development Asia at HENSOLDT, said; “The collaboration illustrates the high level of cooperation between HENSOLDT Singapore and HTX. This is only the beginning of such strategic partnerships between the HTX Singapore and HENSOLDT Singapore. We look forward to expanding this relationship in the near future.”

Dr. Ben Soon, Senior Principal Engineer at HTX and CUAS system designer, added; “The collaboration aims to address the unique challenges presented by urban environments, providing an effective solution for CUAS in Singapore.”
