Saab will supply its Integrated Defensive Aids Suite (IDAS) to Airbus Helicopters for use on H225M Caracal multi-role utility aircraft, the company announced on 23 June.

The suite has been integrated on many airborne platforms such as the Saab 2000, AgustaWestland A109, Super Lynx 300, Boeing CH-47 Chinook, Denel Rooivalk and Oryx, Airbus Helicopters Cougar, Puma and Super Puma, NH Industries NH90, C-130 and L100 Hercules, and Sukhoi Su-30MKM.
