Green Hydrogen

The Unmanned Aviation of the Future

In most cases, transformation of the way in which defence and security scenarios are handled usually has a common denominator: digitalization. With its pioneering spirit and ever-growing portfolio of digital solutions, HENSOLDT is a driving force behind this trend. Consequently, sensors are becoming increasingly smaller, lighter, more secure, and more intelligent. Taking the form of smart and networked systems, they are capable of producing qualitative analyses and predictions in real time on account of AI. As a result, digital sovereignty emerges within a secure cyber environment. HENSOLDT also opens up new room to manoeuvre through the self-sufficient supply of sustainable energy to critical missions.


No Chance for Hackers

The threat level from cyberspace is rising on an almost daily basis, with this trend further driven by increasing networking and greater use of digital processes due to the pandemic. This represents a unique challenge, particularly in the high-security environments in which HENSOLDT operates. The solutions to this challenge are being developed by HENSOLDT Cyber under the auspices of HENSOLDT Ventures – the agile innovation hub with an extremely demanding mission.

Many things used to be less complex – or at least more manageable. A HENSOLDT radar would once – quite literally – be isolated in the desert. Software updates would be loaded directly from a laptop, using local data. Potential damage was always contained locally. Nowadays, systems are deeply interconnected, both within their own subsystems and with the outside world. Future projects such as the air combat cloud within the Future Combat Air System (“FCAS”) and the interconnected Main Ground Combat System (“MGCS”) are prime examples of how this trend is set to accelerate still further in the years ahead. After all, this interconnectivity provides system users with whole new potential on the basis of information superiority.

At the same time, however, this potentially leaves an open goal for cyberattacks, both in a military and civilian context. First, due to the human factor. Entire companies and infrastructures can be incapacitated, particularly during the pandemic and due to the resulting increase in mobile working. But also, as a result of the technology used. In the case of mass-produced hardware and software, you can never be sure of its vulnerabilities – and it is almost impossible to check for them.

HENSOLDT Cyber identified this problem at an early stage and set about working on solutions, specifically for components that are incorporated within systems with particularly high security requirements. Within a very short space of time, a young team developed the processor MiG-V (a processor based on RISC-V called MiG-V “Made in Germany”-V) – the first of its kind in Europe. HENSOLDT Cyber also developed a new high-security operating system: TRENTOS. HENSOLDT Cyber also takes a safety-first approach when it comes to the software running on this operating system and advises third parties to ensure that such applications are developed in line with the same stringent security mechanisms. This gives rise to an overall system that is highly secure across all security-critical software and hardware levels – and that is globally unique at this quality standard. It does not give hackers a chance, as all components can now be inspected in detail and therefore protected. The key to success is therefore “secure IT” rather than “IT security”. HENSOLDT Cyber is addressing the root cause of the problem instead of subsequently securing vulnerable IT by merely tackling symptoms.

The vision is that hardware and software will be gradually integrated within new HENSOLDT products and that existing products will be brought right up to date, for example by replacing processors. At the same time, all components are continuously updated, new dangers evaluated, and new methods developed to defend against them. To this end, HENSOLDT Cyber participates in joint research projects with the Technical University of Munich, other universities all over Germany, and non-university research institutions such as Fraunhofer. Thanks to the early involvement of young academics and technology experts, HENSOLDT Cyber is already engaging with future users and developers.

Under the auspices of HENSOLDT Ventures, HENSOLDT Cyber is an impressive illustration of the power of the in-house innovation incubator. HENSOLDT Analytics and the joint venture J.A.M.E.S (Jetted Additively Manufactured Electronic Sources) – set up with an Israeli 3-D printing specialist in 2021 – also make HENSOLDT Ventures a crucial strategic pillar within the company, true to its own divisional slogan: “revolutionary, not evolutionary.”

Three Questions for Marian Rachow

Head of HENSOLDT Ventures and Managing Director of HENSOLDT Cyber

Idea – Start-Up – Innovation

What role does HENSOLDT Ventures play in today’s HENSOLDT family?

Here at HENSOLDT Ventures, we aim to be one of the major drivers of innovation at the company. Our focus is on disruptive and less incremental developments, particularly in the areas of big data, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, and robotics. As a company within a company, we can develop independently yet closely in line with the portfolio of the Products and Solutions Group, which adds considerable value within the overall context. To this end, we are establishing agile divisions such as HENSOLDT Cyber and HENSOLDT Analytics, where we develop key technologies in the two areas of “highly secure basic IT” and “artificial intelligence” – and these technologies will be integrated into many, if not all, future products of HENSOLDT. In order to accelerate this process, we are building prototypes in Ventures labs, for example a drone that captures another drone using AI. With prototypes such as these, we impress customers and generate new projects, the aim being to incorporate these key technologies within the HENSOLDT Group.

Do you have completely free rein at HENSOLDT Ventures?

We are team players, which is why we have been able to establish ourselves so quickly and firmly within the company. We think outside the box and always in an entrepreneurial way, in keeping with the ONE HENSOLDT ethos. We focus on what takes HENSOLDT to the next technological level. We therefore pitch all our projects to the Executive Committee and the Management Board in order to secure investment. Here, HENSOLDT acts as an internal investor in a corporate start-up. The future value added for HENSOLDT and, most importantly, for our customers must be at the forefront. We have more freedom on the process side when implementing these projects, which certainly gives us an advantage in terms of speed. In particular, the overarching solutions of HENSOLDT Cyber and HENSOLDT Analytics prove how an idea can soon grow into innovations and even separate companies that benefit the entire HENSOLDT Group.

How do you attract the necessary skilled and talented personnel?

The entire defence and security industry is facing the challenge of attracting young talent. Since we were founded in 2018, we have hired some 100 highly qualified employees despite a highly competitive recruitment market – and received roughly 3,500 applications for these positions. After all, we work on exciting topics that appeal particularly to young people with a lot of potential. We also offer, of course, a modern and collaborative open-plan office and numerous opportunities for flexible mobile working. The average age of our team is about 30, which is considerably lower than the average age at HENSOLDT. Nonetheless, we always ensure that our teams are able to draw on the expertise of experienced employees. The combination of deep tech, considerable freedom (which inspires each and every employee to help shape their division), flexible working, a modern office environment, internationality, personal and professional development, and the security offered by the HENSOLDT parent company seems to be the recipe for success, which is why young talents choose us and therefore the defence industry.

Three Questions for Sascha Kegreiß


Processor – Software – Security

How is the danger posed by hackers evolving? And how does HENSOLDT protect itself and its products against this danger?

The risk is growing exponentially. On the one hand, increasing connectivity leads to a rise in the number of potential weak points; on the other hand, hackers can often gain access to an organization’s entire system, including all its components, if their attack is successful. Here at HENSOLDT Cyber, we therefore diverge from the usual approaches, for example firewalls. We address the problem a stage earlier by developing our own secure processor and our own secure operating system, with critical software for our systems and devices running on this operating system. We call this “secure IT” rather than “IT security”.

Why is this now so important for HENSOLDT?

It is a prerequisite for being able to sell secure and integrated solutions as a systems provider. Previously, one of the greatest weaknesses lay in system components that were used as “black boxes”, such as processors, operating systems, and firmware. This is because these components originate from different sources, are closed systems, and – whether intended or not – often exhibit vulnerabilities that can be attacked. We will therefore gradually replace these elements with our own secure alternatives, the security of which we are familiar with and able to verify. Connecting hardware and software gives rise to a highly secure overall system that raises the bar in terms of its excellent security.

How can you guarantee this security, and in which fields will the solutions be deployed?

By virtue of our processor, our operating system, and secure application software, we can use formal methods to demonstrate that there is no single non-specified critical state in the entire system that would enable an attack. The key point is to design these three levels consistently and completely as a secure IT landscape. This package is, of course, ideally suited to all high-security fields within the defence sector, but also for critical infrastructure or applications in space, where it is often not possible to repair damage simply because of the distances involved. Integration within our own products has only just begun, but the possible areas of application go well beyond.

Knowing What Counts

A European champion for big data is emerging. Under the auspices of HENSOLDT Ventures, HENSOLDT Analytics is developing solutions that make it possible to strategically harness data from a large variety of available sources. In order to combat security and defence threats, HENSOLDT combines information from traditional sensors with information from publicly available sources, depending on the application concerned. Artificial intelligence uses this data to generate operationally relevant insights and consolidates these insights in the form of an integrated situation report. As such, solutions tailored to the customer’s unique deployment scenario give rise to superior knowledge, which makes the difference. Against a backdrop of increasingly hybrid threats, it is becoming increasingly critical to know what counts.

Today’s 24/7 information culture and the “always-on” mentality result in an unprecedented flow of information and a wealth of available data. At HENSOLDT Analytics, big data encompasses everything that is available from public sources: online and in traditional media, from news sites through to CNN and Tagesschau, as well as on social media, video, streaming, and photo sharing platforms and in newsletters. Whether copy, images, or videos. Whether written or spoken. And not just in German and English, but in 30 languages including Russian, Arabic, Farsi, Urdu, and Pashto. An infinite treasure trove of data that grows day by day and that is waiting to be harnessed.

But how can all this information be utilized and translated into relevant knowledge? And where does it add specific value?

The answer to the first question is clear: by means of artificial intelligence. This comprises a multitude of technologies, with HENSOLDT Analytics not only relying on existing solutions, but also developing new ones. In 2021, the company acquired SAIL LABS – a market leader in AI-based open-source intelligence (OSINT) solutions, the processing of (big) data, language recognition, and language comprehension. The firm has been carrying out intensive research and development work for more than 20 years. In conjunction with the AI-based image/data processing and machine learning team set up at HENSOLDT Ventures in 2018, the firm’s experts are developing new capabilities, enabling them, for instance, to automatically spot fake news or manipulated images. As such, HENSOLDT Analytics is developing sensor technology for the virtual realm, which complements conventional systems for other areas within the HENSOLDT portfolio.

HENSOLDT already utilizes artificial intelligence in a plethora of sensor applications, for example image analysis and the Xpeller counter-UAV system, where it is used to detect drones at an early stage and distinguish them from other objects such as birds. By virtue of intelligent algorithms, the information received is filtered and processed for improved situational awareness. Radar images and aerial photographs are automatically analysed, with important points identified and unimportant aspects disregarded.

With HENSOLDT Analytics, the idea is that traditional and “virtual” sensors will form a coherent whole, thus paving the way for a completely new and overarching set of insights and knowledge. This is presented via an integrated situation report that summarizes all operationally relevant insights in a clear and user-friendly way.

All the technology required for the multimedia, multisource collection, and analysis of data is handled by HENSOLDT Analytics itself. To this end, the team can draw on the original experience of HENSOLDT as a sensor solutions house in order to develop superior solutions using intelligent algorithms and the extensive domain expertise of the specialist departments, i.e., many years of experience in collecting huge quantities of data and harnessing this data for critical situations based on the highly specialized concepts of operations of different customers.

And this brings us to the second question, which is about application. In the core business of HENSOLDT Analytics – i.e., the military, but also intelligence services and public administrations – linked information from classic and “virtual” sensor systems provides additional knowledge in terms of situational analysis that can make all the difference, especially when facing increasingly hybrid threats. This knowledge may, for example, come in the form of filtered social media photos of the future mission location. Or language fragments that allow important inferences about a potential threat scenario. Or the discovery of deliberately or inadvertently false information that has the potential to manipulate the population and destabilize the security situation. Or an overall tactical overview of the current situation. Available virtually in real time, HENSOLDT Analytics applications enable decision-makers to act quickly on the basis of facts and sound information.

HENSOLDT Analytics solutions are dynamic and constantly evolving. The team is currently working on the expanded integration of satellite images, with language recognition and analysis also enhanced on an ongoing basis. Because language is constantly evolving – and in order to be able to identify and understand cultural linguistic factors and propaganda more effectively using AI.

In summary, HENSOLDT thereby generates strategic advantages – in the interests of its customers.

Analytics two

Three Steps to a Knowledge Advantage:

Analysis of traditional sensors – for example aircraft radars and aerial images – provides an overview of the physical environment (e.g., through imagery intelligence [“IMINT”] and signal intelligence [“SIGINT”]). At the same time, data from the entire spectrum of publicly accessible sources is recorded and analysed (open source intelligence [“OSINT”]). In the third and decisive step, intelligent algorithms and machine learning distil the key insights, which are then presented intuitively in an integrated situation report. The result is knowledge that makes all the difference.


Effective Assistance in the Event of (Natural) Disasters

Going beyond military applications, HENSOLDT Analytics can also offer valuable additional insights when responding to civilian disasters. The 2021 floods in Germany were a strong example of how dramatically natural disasters can threaten the population’s safety and security, even in Central Europe.

The immediate systematic analysis of traditional media reports on the ground provides the emergency services and official agencies with the first key additions to their own information. Comprehensive big data analysis, for example of social media, provides much more specific information. Any photos posted offer additional insights into the current situation and, with disasters such as flooding, can indicate whether critical infrastructure has been impacted. Often, information from social media reveals the true needs of the local population. As part of a HENSOLDT Analytics research project, it was also possible to quickly detect and debunk fake news, such as a report about a fountain that had supposedly been contaminated with E. coli bacteria during the 2013/2014 Danube flooding. The same is true for photographs circulated online of previous floods in the same location, which give a false impression of the current situation and the rescue work required.

The decoding of big data through intelligent algorithms supports disaster relief management and benefits rescue workers and victims on the ground, with the latter group receiving targeted and therefore more effective assistance.

Holistic situational awareness

Closing the Loop

The 2021 UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow once again highlighted the necessity of concrete carbon reduction measures in all areas of life. Renewable energies are set to play a crucial role in this regard, but wind and solar power are subject to considerable fluctuations. One solution is hydrogen storage. With this technology, green energy can be stored and reliably retrieved as needed. The principle is akin to that of a rechargeable battery. Eco-friendly and highly flexible – even in extreme weather conditions – as well as mobile.

HENSOLDT identified the importance of this technology at an early stage, i.e., its relevance for the ever greater appetite for energy from ground stations and entire mission locations in the defence sector; here, HENSOLDT is thus able to ensure the energy supply and therefore the operational usability of its products, including in mobile applications and under extreme conditions. And safeguard sustainable energy management at individual HENSOLDT sites.

However, the potential of hydrogen technology extends far beyond these applications – all the way to green energy provision to meet civilian needs in remote regions, where electricity is still mostly produced using diesel generators. It could also be used, for example, to power ships in port, by entire (industrial) sites and, in the future, be deployed more frequently in locations where renewable energy is generated or needed in tough conditions.

NEXEYA – which became part of HENSOLDT in 2019 – already has ten years of experience in the development and production of hydrogen-based storage units, supply stations, and hydrogen for industrial needs. This expertise was expanded considerably with the acquisition of MAHYTEC – the leading French manufacturer of hydrogen tanks – in 2021. HENSOLDT has been partnering with the company since 2015. MAHYTEC develops and manufactures storage systems for renewable energies on the basis of carbon and glass fibres. The French sites of Angoulême and Dole therefore constitute the HENSOLDT Competence Centre for hydrogen technologies. At the Dole Research and Development Centre, HENSOLDT NEXEYA France cooperates closely with the French National Centre for Scientific Research (“CNRS”). The next generation of hydrogen storage systems is currently under development in Dole and Angoulême; this generation combines sustainability with a greater storage density and is designed for specialized applications.

In order to set a good example and demonstrate the performance capability of hydrogen storage, HENSOLDT also uses the technology at its own sites. At the HENSOLDT site in Kiel, a pilot project is currently being developed for the German market, with the goal to demonstrate to politicians and business the importance of hydrogen for the energy transition.

Through its commitment to green hydrogen, HENSOLDT is reducing its carbon footprint by means of technological advancement as it pursues its goal of carbon neutrality by 2035. The company is also illustrating how sustainability can become a business model in its own right, such as in the form of mobile energy systems that power HENSOLDT products in use. And thereby closing the loop.

Hydrogen power is becoming a HENSOLDT business.

HENSOLDT Energy Storage System + photovoltaic + wind (option) to operate Kiel site mainly autonomously as valuable ESG contribution.

Hydrogen Production
Flagship Projekt Kiel

A Flagship Projekt in Kiel

At its Competence Centre in Kiel, HENSOLDT currently employs some 50 people, primarily in system support for first- and third-party products in the areas of radar, intelligence, and communication, especially for the German military.

Since 2019, the site has been running completely on energy from renewable sources, making it almost fully carbon-neutral. All other German sites are already following this example. In the next stage, green energy will be generated via on-site solar installations in Kiel and fed into the site via a hydrogen storage system. In fall 2022, a hydrogen energy system will therefore be installed on the company premises by HENSOLDT NEXEYA France; this system will have a modular, container-based structure.

It is intended that the energy generated on-site will be used to split water into hydrogen and oxygen. The hydrogen gas is extracted and stored. It can then be converted into electrical energy in a fuel cell when required. Without harming the environment, hydrogen and oxygen come together in the fuel cell to produce electricity, water, and process heat, which can also be utilized. The plan is that the site’s entire electricity needs will be met in this way.

In total, this enables an annual saving of some 40 metric tons of CO2 at this site alone. At the same time, a flagship hydrogen project is being implemented in Kiel, with solutions that will soon “sail over” to other HENSOLDT sites.

Green Power

Green Power in the Outback

Remote regions make up roughly two-thirds of Australia’s land area. Two percent of the Australian population live off-grid in small, remote communities where electricity is generated locally. These isolated communities, some of which are mining operations, account for more than six percent of annual Australian energy consumption. Although these communities have more than enough wind and sun despite the often extreme weather conditions, they mainly rely on diesel generators to meet local electricity needs, which makes Australia an ideal testing ground for hydrogen energy systems.

Therefore, HENSOLDT Australia has launched its Total Renewable Energy Enterprise (“TREE”) program. In partnership with the Australian government, as well as universities and research institutions, the focus is on developing systems that harness cutting-edge hydrogen technologies. The TREE solutions from HENSOLDT cover all aspects of local energy generation and storage, as well as the extraction and use of hydrogen. The project may also create local jobs and income streams for communities, such as through the sale of the green electricity, but also by selling the hydrogen directly to consumers for use in fuel cells. What’s more, this process gives rise to clean water, which is often exceptionally scarce in these drought-afflicted regions.

At the same time, the insights gained in the outback provide HENSOLDT with vital knowledge for the ongoing development of its hydrogen energy systems. After all, military field operations also frequently exhibit extreme conditions, just like those seen in civilian contexts. But power and water are always needed. Here, technologies that enable a mobile and independent energy supply have the potential to become a vital extension to the HENSOLDT portfolio of customised solutions.

Zero Carbon by 2035

In 2021, HENSOLDT set up an ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) committee comprising members of the Management Board and other selected executives. The committee focuses on central sustainability management topics such as carbon neutrality, supply chain optimization, and diversity. One of its stated aims is the HENSOLDT commitment to safeguard the planet and its resources. On account of the continuous reduction of the carbon footprint, the company aims to be completely carbon-neutral by 2035. As an “in-house” solution, the expansion of hydrogen storage technology will play a valuable role in achieving this goal.

Safety first

Safety first

Drones and other unmanned aircraft – already widespread in a military context – are still mostly remote-controlled by pilots. However, the true potential of the unmanned aviation of the future stretches all the way to autonomous flying – with mission-critical technologies from HENSOLDT.

The drones of tomorrow will fly themselves, whether for optical military intelligence, to monitor security-relevant environments, or for purely civilian purposes. Here, they have the potential to revolutionize not only the freight and logistics sector, but also urban air mobility (e.g., with air taxis). The next stage required in the development of platforms for unmanned aviation is currently being explored in a host of pilot projects at established technology firms and start-ups alike. While such aircraft still almost always have a pilot on board, this will not be necessary in the future. Instead, the pilot’s role will be performed by technology, thus opening up an important future market.

HENSOLDT is already active in various segments of this growing market and is therefore contributing to improved aviation security – from autonomous intelligence systems to counter-UAV equipment. But when it comes to the civilian and military use of unmanned aircraft, almost all nations are faced with the same hurdle: the lack of (international) standards and approval procedures for the so-called “certified” category in which larger drones fly in accordance with generally accepted aviation rules and whose stringent safety standards they are required to meet. Here, the precision and reliability of on-board technologies are more important than ever. HENSOLDT offers such technologies – and also makes an important contribution to official standardization processes for unmanned aircraft via its participation in the European Organisation for Civil Aviation Equipment.

Detect and Avoid

One of the major tasks for secure unmanned aviation is that large drones – whether carrying freight or people – need to replace the pilot’s perception with a technical system. In order to avoid potential collisions with other flying objects and when flying close to the ground, these systems actually have to be superior to the human eye. They also have to present information in such a way that it can either be used by a remote pilot or by automated systems – including in the event that the remote pilot loses their connection.

The solution is a “detect and avoid system,” the core component of which is a powerful yet lightweight radar sensor. Currently, HENSOLDT is also working on solutions for detect and avoid systems for a raft of different applications as part of international research and development projects. These comprise not only prototypes for the Eurodrone and unmanned civilian transport aircraft, but also future one-person-cockpit solutions in the airliner segment. And when it comes to the highly promising segment of air taxis and transport drones, the company is partnering with numerous young tech firms who value its experienced support and aviation expertise for their developments.

For drones, DAA radars have to detect aircraft at much greater distances than the eyes of a pilot on a manned aircraft. Despite being of minimal size and weight, and offering low energy consumption, HENSOLDT solutions also boast bad-weather recognition, turbulence avoidance, and navigation assistance. As such, detect and avoid solutions with HENSOLDT technology enable the seamless integration of unmanned aircraft in the aviation of the future.

Record and Analyse

In manned aviation, flight data recorders – also known as “black boxes” – are fitted to planes as standard. Due to official regulations, such as those issued by the European Aviation Safety Agency, it recently also became mandatory to install these devices in light airplanes and helicopters used for commercial passenger transportation. HENSOLDT has a more than 35-year tradition of supplying flight data recorders for a variety of military, civil, and surveillance airplane and helicopter types. The latest models in the SferiRec® LCR (lightweight combined voice and flight data recorder) range offer an all-in-one recording solution and integrate numerous sensors, GPS receivers, and a microphone in a device that is extremely stable despite weighing just one kilogram.

This technology doesn’t just help in investigating the cause of an accident and therefore preventing similar potential incidents, but also makes it easier to identify problems in day-to-day flight operations thanks to corresponding data evaluation and analysis. To this end, all voice, video, image, and data recordings can be read on board without the need for an additional electricity supply.

Therefore, the HENSOLDT SferiRec® LCR is ideal when it comes to increasing safety in the unmanned aviation of the future. Here, the comprehensive recording and monitoring of flight data will play a particularly pivotal role, both in terms of certification and subsequent operations. As will the technologies and the compact, weight-minimizing design.

LCR weight

Innovative and Sustainable

The unmanned aviation of the future brings together so many benefits that its development will be unstoppable. In the freight sector, it can ease the burden on ground traffic. In the logistics industry, it has the potential to revolutionize entire production sites. It saves money and offers additional security, in both the military and surveillance fields. It is energy-efficient and therefore sustainable.

With its innovative products for the deployment and control of unmanned aircraft – products that have already proven their mettle in manned aviation – HENSOLDT already offers solutions that will drive further development. At the same time, the company is in an excellent position to embrace one of the largest growth markets in aviation.
