Protection against Surface-to-Air Missile attacks

The Threat

The armed forces have recognised the increasing threat to its tactical aircraft from infrared guided missiles. More than 500,000 shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles (MANPADS) are on the worldwide market and partly also in the hands of non-state organisations. A high percentage of the aircraft losses in current and recent conflicts were from ground based defensive systems using IR SAMS.

The threat of IR guided anti-aircraft missiles is evident. They are an undeniable danger to the aircrew and the aircraft.

Facing the Challenge

To counter the increasing threat by IR-guided missiles, countries and armed forces have to deploy more sophisticated solutions for aircraft selfdefence. Especially advanced MWS and sophisticated countermeasures against IR-guided missiles play an important role in this context.

Easy Installation

  • Lowest number of equipment
  • Very low weight balance and power consumption
  • No interfaces to mission or avionic systems
  • Fully integrated CMDS (only one display/control unit for the whole system)
  • High reliability

High Performance MWS

  • High spatial resolution providing discrimination between fixed and moving sources and accurate approach direction finding (imaging sensor)
  • Multi-threat handling (≤ 8 per system)
  • High probability of detection and lowest possible false alarm rate
  • Difficult to deceive
  • No emissions from the sensors (stealth)
  • No cooling, short activation time
  • No disturbance from IR light and laser
  • Low weight and power consumption
  • High degree of redundancy

Stand-Alone Missile Protection System

  • Completely independent system, no connection to a/c avionic or mission system required
  • AUTO, SEMI-automatic and manual modes
  • High-precision audio alarm messages (user definable)
  • NVG compatible system display
