Germany selects Saab self-protection pods
The German Air Force has selected the enhanced Saab BOZ-101 self-protection system, the company announced on 11 April.
Saab received the order for 29 units of the electronic warfare self-protection and countermeasures system from the NATO Eurofighter 2000 and Tornado Management Agency (NETMA) on behalf of the German Air Force.
The BOZ system has been in use on Tornado for many years. This order is for the enhanced version, designated BOZ-101 EC.
The wing mounted pod consists of a missile approach warning system in the aft section and a countermeasures dispensing system. Dispensing can be performed forward downwards and sideways in two adjustable directions. The dispenser is designed to counter modern IR-guided threats.
Deliveries will take place during 2017-2020.
