Defense technology company Hensoldt UK has announced the launch of a new X-Band ground based surveillance radar named Spexer 600.

The multi-mission radar will use the company’s SharpEye solid state transceiver technology to complement the Spexer family of active electronically scanned array or AESA radars.

Designed to meet user requirements to detect multiple threats in the battlefield or security environment, it offers a number of modes allowing multiple functions to be carried out by a single radar sensor. The built in tracker reduces the need for additional electronic units, making it a lightweight, crew portable unit that can be set up in a few minutes. In fixed installations, the low weight allows it to be installed without any specialist masts or structures.

Controlled either locally or remotely from a command center, the radar can be easily networked with other sensors.

“Spexer 600 from Hensoldt UK is the solution for today’s complex operational needs on the battlefield, or in securing the nations critical infrastructure against multiple threats,” stated Adrian Pilbeam, head of sales – Ground and Maritime Surveillance Radar.
