Quad A 2017: BAE unveils new aircraft survivability system

25th April 2017 - 17:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


BAE Systems has developed a new aircraft survivability solution, the 3-Dimensional Advanced Warning System (3DAWS) product suite.

3DAWS is designed to protect fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft from advanced threats, working as an adjunct to the company's Common Missile Warning System (CMWS) or any future passive threat detection system. The system uses the same passively-cued, semi-active radio frequency 3D tracker technology as CMWS, providing the third dimension to the system's detection process and allowing for definitive threat assessment.

The system has been developed to address the proliferating threat environment, protecting aircraft during complex, multi-threat engagement scenarios through a layered countermeasure defense. It maximises the effectiveness of current flare and directable infrared countermeasure systems, and provides the necessary tracking capabilities for future soft- and hard-kill countermeasure solutions to damage or destroy incoming threats.

The 3DAWS suite has been designed with highly modular and open architecture standards, and can integrate with all existing US Army aircraft; and can be tightly integrated with existing radar or laser warning systems, providing a third dimension to those passive systems.
