The use of aircraft is increasingly restricted by radar-based, highly integrated air defense systems and weapons operating beyond the horizon line.
In view of this situation, only modern self-defense and jamming systems can ensure the air forces’ lethality and survivability. Infrared and UV sensors as well as radar warning receivers automatically trigger defense systems and support the pilots in critical situations.
Detect missiles with extremely low false alarm rates
UV-based passive imaging sensors detect the UV radiation signature of approaching missiles with extremely low false alarm rates.
In particular, they enhance the protection of helicopters, wide-body aircraft and fighters against shoulder-fired infrared-guided missiles.
Detect attacking missiles at long ranges
IR-based missile approach warners detect attacking missiles at long ranges and direct target-effective counter measures very precisely.
Detect radar-based threats early and reliably
With the help of the latest artificial intelligence and digital signal processing methods, our Kalaetron Radar Warning Receiver (RWR) detects radar-based threats early and reliably.
Digital RWRs increase the assertiveness of aircraft and helicopters and their survivability, especially in view of the increasingly dense signal spectrum and the growing threat posed by highly integrated air defense systems.
