For the first time, the MUV will present a modular sensor fusion platform that can be used in the civilian and military sectors for surveillance and reconnaissance as well as for self-protection and convoy protection.

The basis of the MUV concept demonstrator is an all-terrain seven-ton-chassis from IDV with a maximum payload of 4 tons. A sensor suite from HENSOLDT is installed on it, with the SETAS, MUSS, Radio Direction Finder and S3 MIMO-Radar systems. All systems are connected by the Central Information Processing Unit (CIPU), which forms the backbone of the sensor suite.

The system architecture provides automatic information processing that supports the user in decision-making and ensures operational readiness under all conditions. Through the sensor data network, HENSOLDT creates complete situational awareness with its Sensor Suite. Potential customers can configure their personal suite according to their wishes through the modular structure of the individual systems.

The advantage of the MUV concept demonstrator lies in the combination of the networked HENSOLDT sensor suite with the highly mobile, reliable and versatile vehicular platform from IDV. With the vehicle, there is now for the first time a turnkey solution that combines adaptive detection and classification capability with the features of a vehicle specifically designed for a wide range of tasks.

"The cooperation with IDV in the field of MUV concept demonstrator is directly related to our portfolio expansion. Russia's war against Ukraine shows how important networked high-performance sensor technology and optical systems are for equipping our armed forces in line with the times," said Andreas Hülle Head of the Optronics & Landsolutions Division and Managing Director of HENSOLDT Optronics GmbH.

At EUROSATORY 2022, HENSOLDT and IDV will present the joint MUV solution, which offers modularity, precision and speed to ensure the best possible situational awareness.
