Product description

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.
