TDW Gesellschaft für verteidigungstechnische Wirksysteme mbH

Leading European warhead producer TDW

A striking Effect

Modern warhead technologies guarantee the optimum "terminal effect", thus determining to a great extent the operational effectiveness of the missile systems deployed. TDW is the European leader in the development and manufacture of lethal packages for guided missiles, drones and torpedoes. TDW contributes its know-how in all fields relating to lethal packages or their component parts, including design and assessment, development and qualification, manufacture and integration, testing and validation.

Depending on customer requirements, TDW will develop complete lethal packages, warheads or warhead components such as the explosive charge, the safety device or the fuzing system. On the industrial level, TDW produces complete lethal packages with special emphasis on the manufacture and adaptation of explosive charges. TDW has played a pioneering role in the realm of insensitive explosive charges.

Among the high-performance TDW products are shaped charge systems for antitank missiles, fragmentation warheads for air-defence and air-to-air missiles, as well as anti-aircraft lethality enhancers. In addition, TDW develops the lethal packages for new anti-ship missiles with land attack capabilities as well as the insensitive torpedo warheads.

The development trends are determined by:

  • Intelligent explosive charges with directional effect, scalable effect or target-adaptive selectable effect with sufficient performance when deployed against military targets, but avoiding or minimising collateral damage.
  • Insensitive munitions (IM) for protection of one's own troops against unintended effects such as shelling or fire.
  • Modern, reliable and insensitive mechanical or electronic safety and arming devices
  • Intelligent fuzing systems with determination of the optimum fuzing time
