Watching your back in complex missions
The launch of Saab’s IDAS-310 has marked another leap forward from Saab in Electronic Warfare solutions. The newest version of its Integrated Defensive Aids Suite.
In today’s increasingly complex and rapidly changing mission environments, electronic warfare, as we know it, is not a nice to have but a must have for survivability. To really outsmart threats, self-protection needs to evolve. Threats, be they symmetric or asymmetric, are constantly evolving, adapting, becoming smarter and ever more difficult to detect. To stay ahead Saab’s advanced system is specially designed to protect both aircraft and helicopters from a wide range of threats, including radar-guided missiles as well as various radio frequency, infrared, and laser threats.
The IDAS-310 comes with several key features, such as a combination of Missile Approach Warning, Laser Warning, and Radar Warning capabilities. It is equipped with an updated EW controller, a radar warning receiver that excels in contemporary radio frequency environments, and enhanced Ground Support and Test equipment for electronic support and intelligence tasks.
The system's small, lightweight, and highly adaptable structure allows for efficient integration of Directed Infrared Countermeasure technology, ensuring top-notch protection that allows the pilot to concentrate on the mission at hand.
“The system's small, lightweight, and highly adaptable structure allows for efficient integration of Directed Infrared Countermeasure technology, ensuring top-notch protection that allows the pilot to concentrate on the mission at hand. Additionally, it supports Expendable Active Decoy deployment, further enhancing its defensive capabilities,” says Jan Widerström, the President and Managing Director at Saab.
By employing advanced digital signal processing for real-time threat analysis and neutralizing countermeasures, the IDAS-310 provides excellent situational awareness. This system seamlessly integrates with aircraft mission systems, enabling pilots to make better decisions and improving the flow of information.
