The AMPS suite can also be amended with another counter-measure. The use of DIRCM technology has been requrested by more and more customers as jamming with a laser based DIRCM is often more effective against enhanced IR guided missiles compared to the traditional use of flares. In addition the aircrew would not run out of counter-measures which is another reason for many Air Forces to use DIRCM as the counter-measure system. The MILDS MWS is compatible in terms of accuracy and Pre-Alarm capability. Moreover the low FAR of MILDS ensures a high reliability of the DIRCM.
