Several incidents within the last years revealed that there is a rapidly emerging threat caused by small, cheap and commercially available UAVs. Armed and security forces as well as critical infrastructures and high-level events are exposed to increasing threats by misused UAVs.
Threatening situations may result from thrill seekers who fly drones into prohibited areas or above people and facilities. But also, from much graver illegal uses such as espionage, smuggling, sabotage or terrorism. Drones can record video or microphone as well as carry and drop prohibited items, toxic materials or even explosives. The threat from drones should not be underestimated
The forces tasked to monitor vast frontiers need powerful, long-range sensors and optics to detect conspicuous activities and spot informative details from afar. Our security solutions are well-suited for monitoring land and sea borders. They can be adjusted to the specific tasks and are interconnected. We offer a complete, modular surveillance suite which consists of optronic and radars sensors as well as the hard- and software for surveillance headquarters. In these headquarters all the information is bundled so that the security or military forces on site can monitor hundreds of kilometres of border concurrently.

Surveillance even under extreme weather conditions, such as haze and fog
Coastal areas are extremely difficult to monitor. For one because of the huge amount of different shaped objects to distinguish, from small, fast boasts up to heavy, slow tankers. For another because of the weather conditions with haze and fog which can impact viewing distances dramatically. HENSOLDT therefore offers powerful sensors and high-end C2 software for surveillance applications in coastal areas. Our cameras with long-range surveillance capabilities can spot boats at distances of 20 or even 30 kilometres and they are robust enough to easily withstand coastal climatic conditions.
In addition, our radars are capable of decluttering the clutter and give precise information about the range, angle and velocity of objects. With automated detection, tracking and identification capabilities our security solutions make it easy to surveillance coastal areas.
Radar-based coastal surveillance
Maintaining the security of coastlines
More than 90% of the world’s trade is carried by sea, so maintaining the security of coastlines, territorial waters and Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) is vital. This calls for real-time information and intelligence for effective decision making. In difficult environmental conditions of the littoral radar is the ideal technology for all-weather, day/night surveillance of wide areas.
We provide radars which can detect cooperative and uncooperative targets at longer ranges , early and in heavy rain and high sea states.
Optronic coastal surveillance
Precise information and a clear view
Safety through effective surveillance is vital at sea and coastlines, thus, HENSOLDT offers maritime EO/IR surveillance systems that meet the highest requirements. Combining high-end cameras and sensors, we offer surveillance capabilities in support of security while being extremely user-friendly.
Than when it comes to positive identification of individual objects electro-optic sensors are indispensable
Critical infrastructure :
Finding the right security solution to balance budget and risk is a major challenge for any commercial operation. HENSOLDT’s flexibility allows the selection and configuration of just the right combination of electro-optical, radar and electronic warfare equipment to deliver optimized solutions.

Protecting oil and gas production facilities
Ensuring the safety of vital facilities
Oil and Gas production facilities are crucial for ensuring nations energy supplies. If the facilities are subjected to attacks or other illegal activities such as oil theft, production can be severely interrupted which in turn can lead to a major energy crises.
Therefore, keeping oil and gas production facilities safe is a prerogative, not just for the producers but also of Federal Governments and international institutions.
