About JUNGHANS Defence - Safety. Innovation. Reliability.

The brand "JUNGHANS Defence" encompasses JUNGHANS Microtec GmbH, Germany, and its 100% subsidiary JUNGHANS T2M S.A.S., France.
JUNGHANS Defence is a leading supplier of all types of fuzes for ammunition, and Safety & Arming Devices (SADs) for rockets, missiles, guided munitions, shoulder-launched weapons and torpedoes.

The company is involved extensively within the diverse fields of precision engineering, electro-mechanics, electronics, pyrotechnics and material technologies in order to provide customers with high-performance fuzes and ignition systems which ensure safe and reliable function in a high g-operational environment.

JUNGHANS Microtec GmbH is the centre of competence for precision mechanics, mechanical fuzes and fuze components, including (micro-mechanical) sub-assemblies and mechanical Safety and Arming Devices. The company has, in-house, an environmental test centre and a highly specialized toolshop, servicing both internal as well as external customers.

JUNGHANS T2M S.A.S. is the centre of excellence for fully electronic fuzes, electronic components, sub-assemblies, sensors, signal processing and proximity radar technologies.

Even though we are two legally separated companies, there is no distinction made between our operating businesses; after all we are two closely linked and strongly interacting centres of competencies for hybrid fuzes, for example, fuzes that integrate both mechanical and electronic components. The “we are one company” strong self-perception is unconditionally given top priority and underpins the brand of "JUNGHANS Defence".

JUNGHANS Defence is the undisputed European leader in the domains of fuzing and fuzing technologies, which are highly specific, demanding comprehensive expertise and a specialised background. The company has all of the skills and technologies required for this product domain, and has over many decades developed the highest level of expertise with detailed knowledge and understanding of the designing, engineering and manufacturing of high performance and high precision fuzes and Safety & Arming Devices (SADs), for all types of munitions and missiles. These capabilities cover diverse areas of expertise including precision engineering, electro-mechanics, micro-mechanics, pyrotechnics and material technologies.

The company offers numerous types of mechanical, electro-mechanical and electronic fuzes, either directly to the end-user or to munitions manufacturers, both ready-to-use products for artillery, naval and mortar ammunition, as well as infantry grenades, rockets, ballistic missiles, guided munitions, shoulder launched weapons, torpedoes and air delivered bombs and fuzing modules to be integrated into the complex munitions or missiles systems of partner companies (for example, SADs for missile warheads).

JUNGHANS Defence is able to address a wide range of applications ranging from simple medium calibre low-cost ammunition to sophisticated Safety & Arming Devices for missiles. The company favours an innovative approach to the use of modular designs wherever possible, leveraged upon existing technologies; this supports JUNGHANS Defence’ strategy of delivering effective customized solutions whilst also sustaining the long-term supply of these strategically important products.

The company focuses all industrial and technical assets and capacities upon fuzing activities, and therefore fully understands and is able to exploit the various critical technologies (for example, mechanical, electronic and pyrotechnic), and functions (for example, time, impact, proximity and multi-function), that are necessary to develop and produce the highest performing fuze products.

We pride ourselves on our unrivalled reputation for the highest quality, reliability and safety of our products, consistently demonstrated by our superlative in-service track record.

Utilising the German and French centres of competencies, and thus integrating the synergistic expertise of each, JUNGHANS Defence manages extremely modern industrial assets, ensuring flexibility and long-term sustainability of manufacture and supply of these strategically important components. The company is committed to further investments in the fuze domain, with over 20% of turnover entirely dedicated to Research & Development activities, utilising a team of more than 50 dedicated engineers and technicians.

JUNGHANS Defence possesses the unique asset of being able to fully assess the customer's actual needs with an objective view, and then proposing the most optimised, suitable and reliable state-of-the-art design solutions incorporating unmatched safety standards, in order to fully satisfy all stated requirements.

The company is currently working on a new generation of proximity sensors and new airburst fuzing solutions, designed to deliver unmatched performances across a wide range of fuzes in both direct and indirect fire domains, regardless of the calibre.

New operational requirements for munitions and missile fuzing systems are increasingly demanding improved levels of safety, greater flexibility and an enhancement of terminal effects. This new generation of fuzes will therefore have to provide munitions with optimised performances, based on sophisticated and complex functionalities incorporated into the fuze design. To deal with these increasing demands, the JUNGHANS Defence fuze design team continuously focuses upon providing innovative solutions based on cutting-edge technologies.

Delivering best value-for-money, building long-term beneficial business relationships, and providing maximum customer satisfaction.
