The Airborne Missile Protection System is a flexible stand-alone off-the-shelf self-protection suite for helicopters and ﬁxed-wing aircraft.
It is capable of combining different kinds of warning sensors, countermeasures and other avionic equipment in order to protect the platform and its crew against a variety of threats as e.g. infrared, laser or radar guided missile threats.
Its modular design allows AMPS to be easily adapted and conﬁgured to the speciﬁc operational needs and for different mission proﬁles.
our self-protection systems are in operational use on more than 700 military and VIP platforms for various customers worldwide.
AMPS-M: Integrates countermeasures dispenser system with 1 to 16 smart dispensers
AMPS-MV: Integrates Missile Verification Sensors to confirm the presence of an approaching missile, including parameters like distance and velocity. Depending on the operating mode of countermeasures are automatically initiated.
AMPS-ML: Integrates ALTAS-2Q(B), a passive Laser Warning System that is designed to detect, track and provide warning of hostile laser sources.
AMPS-MLR: Integrates Kalaetron RWR radar warning receiver. Due to its fully digital design, the radar warner detects and identifies threats incredibly quickly and with a very low false alarm rate, over an extremely wide frequency range.
AMPS-MD: Instead of flares as countermeasure AMPS can be configured with Directed Infrared Counter Measures (DIRCM)
