Our strategy is built around our vision to become Europe’s leading, platform-independent provider of defence and security sensor solutions with global reach. In particular, we focus on five dimensions of our business: (i) innovation, (ii) our customers, (iii) operational excellence, (iv) M&A, and (v) our culture.
As a German high-tech company with a global brand, innovation is intrinsic to HENSOLDT’s DNA. Accordingly, the company has invested significantly in research and development in recent years and supports in-house innovation with its HENSOLDT Ventures start-up incubator. The main focus is on the use of AI-based technologies such as machine learning and big data analysis. HENSOLDT is very successful at turning innovative ideas into market-ready products, such as the Xpeller counter-UAV system and the TwInvis passive radar. Through the development of groundbreaking key technology, HENSOLDT helps to protect soldiers, security personnel and critical infrastructure.
Furthermore, we intend to continue to use value-accretive acquisitions to accelerate our growth. HENSOLDT will use its strong market position as a German defence and security sensor solutions champion to leverage its geographical expansion. We are also committed to promoting a corporate culture of shared success.
HENSOLDT was created from various former Airbus activities in the areas of defense and security electronics. We became independent from Airbus in 2017 and have since operated as a stand-alone company.
