Guarding against the threat from above - Airborne expertise from Rheinmetall

Air defence systems

Rheinmetall is one of the world's foremost makers of advanced air defence systems. The company leads the global market in automatic cannon-based air defence, and is the sole system supplier able to offer fire control technology, automatic cannon, integrated guided missiles and Ahead airburst ammunition – all from a single source.

Weapon systems and ammunition

Aircraft cannon systems, including their ammunition as well as ammunition for air defence systems form part of Rheinmetall's product range. Decades of experience in the design, development and production of automatic cannons have resulted in a number of modern and precise weapon systems featuring easy handling, cost efficiency and operational reliability. For example, the revolver cannon BK27 was developed according to the stringent requirements for NATO air forces for the use in the Tornado aircraft as well as the Eurofighter.

Protective systems and passive protection

Rheinmetall offers a wide range of high-effective active and passive protection solutions. Rheinmetall develops highly efficient spectrally balanced decoys, array flares and spot flares for protecting carrier aircrafts, helicopters and jets from modern infrared missiles. Furthermore Rheinmetall develops passive system solutions for protecting from ballistic threats by applying the latest modular composite technologies.

Simulation and training systems

Rheinmetall Defence has long been a vendor of innovative and advanced technologies for flight training. The company participates in many European multi-national flight training programmes such as those for the NH-90, Tiger Attack Helicopter, Eurofighter or the A400M. For all these projects Rheinmetall Defence is providing training solutions ranging from Computer Based Training, Part-Task and System Trainers over Cockpit-Procedure and Maintenance Trainers up to Full Mission Simulators. With the usage of current and established interface protocols these simulation systems can be networked and used in joint-combined training scenarios for network-enabled training.
