H ΗΕNSOLDT προωθεί ταχύτατα την ανάπτυξη ενός συστήματος προειδοποίησης αποφυγής συγκρούσεων για χρήση τόσο σε πολιτικά, αλλά και σε στρατιωτικά drones, γύρω από τον κεντρικό ρόλο ενός αισθητήρα ραντάρ (radar sensor)…

“…Sensor solutions provider HENSOLDT is vigorously pushing ahead with the development of a collision warning system for civil and military drones. After the radar sensor as the core element of a collision warning system was already successfully tested in flight as part of the ProSA-n (military) and KoKo2 (civil) study programmes, work on the software required for interaction with an autopilot is well advanced.
