IRIS-T SLM Medium Range Air Defence System

With its unique integration philosophy, Diehl Defence offers a most modern, 360 degree air defence system to its customers. The possibility to integrate various sensors and effectors forms the basis of customized solutions.

Core of the air defence system is the IRIS-T SL missile. Targeted adjustments in aerodynamics and propellant enable an extraordinary range of 40 km and a height coverage of 20 km. The thrust vector control enables maximum lateral acceleration directly after launch and by that allows fighting against targets at very short-range.

The wide threat catalogue of the IRIS-T SL missile ranges from strategic bombers to fighter aircraft, attack helicopters, anti-radiation missiles, cruise missiles, precision guided bombs and drones to large calibre rockets.

An effective and economical solution to realize an air defence system for short and very short-ranges offers the usage of the IRIS-T air-to-air missile as a surface-to-air missile. For this, the unchanged IRIS-T gets updated with an adapted software. Thereby, already introduced and procured missiles can be used in an alternative way. The system achieves performance parameters of up to 12 km in range and 8 km in altitude.

HPEM SkyWolf Effector

HPEM (High-Power Electro Magnetics) effectors offer the possibility of disturbing the operation of electronic systems by means of interference pulses. The non-lethal effectors can be applied to protect armed forces against Improvised Explosive Devices (IED), to stop getaway vehicles in moving traffic without employing physical force and to prevent unauthorized access to critical security areas, like camps. 

Moreover, HPEM effectors can counter small, unmanned vehicles in the vicinity. As last line of defence, HPEM SkyWolf is a very effective method to stop also waypoint navigated or autonomous drones and swarms, which cannot be jammed. The HPEM effect is working without any time delay. 

Furthermore, HPEM SkyWolf can be combined with various sensors for detection and verification and it can be easily integrated into command & control systems. 

HPEM SkyWolf is part of the mission-proven counter-UAS system GUARDION.

HPEM effectors pose no health hazard to users and uninvolved individuals.
