Conventional intelligence gathering aircraft do not carry soft-kill EW measures and are thus less effective in closing the sensor-to-shooter loop. The combined capabilities of intelligence gathering and EW soft-kill enable powerful control over the electromagnetic spectrum. These capacities onboard a single platform provide enhanced versatility for a wide range of mission types according to customer needs, combining operational elements – ESM/ELINT, ECM, COMINT, COMJAM and Command and Control (C2) – all operated and managed by a single entity onboard a platform.
Magnesium Teflon Viton flares. Reliable and effective, the expendable countermeasures can be ejected from all modern fixed-wing fighter aircraft, such as the F-16, F-15 and others, as well as from helicopters and transport aircraft, such as the C-130 Hercules.
The MINI-SAMP small-form decoy flare dispenser system is capable of defeating modern IR seeking MANPADS and air-to-air missiles. With one-third the weight and length of standard flares, the mini stand-alone missile protection system provides protection for light helicopters previously undefended due to weight constraints.
The active decoy is used in Suppression of Enemy Air Defense (SEAD) missions, enhancing survivability of friendly aircraft and guided munitions by saturating enemy air defense systems with multiple false targets with individual target Radar Cross Sections (RCS) and velocity. The ATALD can simulate attacks against early warning radars, causing air defense systems to expend resources on the decoys.
The L70 upgrade is a cost-effective, integrated and coordinated system for enhanced air defense against low-level air attack and ground targets. Featuring advanced operational components for targeting and ﬁring as well as radar interface, the L70 delivers improved accuracy and hit probability. The upgrade offers operational ﬂexibility, with quick deployment and rapid reaction time.
