Sensor Solution specialist Hensoldt is strengthening its avionics business by re-naming its subsidiary Euroavionics and addressing the avionics market under the unified brand name Hensoldt Avionics.
The strategic move is driven by a new management team led by the Managing Directors, André Hinueber and Dieter Buchdrucker. Euroavionics has been part of Hensoldt Group since 2017.
“Hensoldt Avionics is highly successful in the civil avionics market while Hensoldt has a strong position in the military avionics domain”, said Celia Pelaz, Head of Spectrum Dominance/Airborne Solutions at Hensoldt. “Our complementary portfolio and market access open up mutual growth opportunities which are now also reflected by the name change.”
Hensoldt Avionics Group, with approximately 100 employees, designs, produces and markets civil certified avionic equipment that provides interfaces to a wide range of third-party avionics and sensors. Among their products are situational awareness mission management systems as well as enhanced reality computers and autopilots, particularly for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. The company generates revenues of more than € 20m. Their products are installed in almost every type of civil rotary wing aircraft by various OEMs.
Mother company Hensoldt is a leading provider of military avionics systems such as situational awareness systems, military mission computers and flight data recorders for helicopters and fighter aircraft.
A new management team is in place at Hensoldt Avionics. André Hinueber, who served at Hensoldt Sensors for several years, is the Managing Director and is responsible for business development and manufacturing. Dieter Buchdrucker is Co-Managing Director and responsible for HR and Finance. Michael Gröninger as Authorised Officer will be responsible for the product business.
