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 such as infrared, laser or radar guided missile threats.
AMPS´s modular design allows it 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 such as distance and velocity. Depending on the operating mode, 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 countermeasures, AMPS can be configured with Directed Infrared Counter Measures (DIRCM).
