Hensoldt has received an order from Qinetiq GmbH to supply its ARGOS-II HD electro-optical (EO) infrared system and EuroNAV control and evaluation software on two Diamond DA62 MPP multipurpose platform aircraft, Hensoldt announced on 9 March.

A Hensoldt spokesperson told Janes that the ARGOS-II and EuroNav capabilities form an EO reconnaissance system, which is part of Hensoldt’s ‘MissionGrid’ platform: a scalable network of airborne sensors and data fusion applications.

According to the company, the systems “will be pre-integrated by Hensoldt and [integrated] by QinetiQ for [intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance] services and training of national and international [joint terminal attack controller] customers and operators with the DA62 MPP aircraft, manufactured by Diamond Aircrafts Industries, Austria”.

The spokesperson confirmed that systems would be pre-integrated on the aircraft in the second half of this year but they were unable to provide information regarding the customers and total value of the contract.
