PIDS+ and Flare-Up for Dutch F-16s

23rd February 2017 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Terma has signed a contract with the Royal Netherlands Air Force for PIDS+ missile warning integration and Flare-Up for its F-16 fleet, the company announced on 20 February.

The Dutch F-16's current Pylon Integrated Dispenser System, Universal (PIDSU) with MIL-STD-1760 capability will be upgraded to PIDS+ with Flare-Up. The system detects incoming missiles and dispenses flares to decoy the missile.

The system counters heat-seeking missiles via six sensors and one processor. Three sensors are installed in both the left hand and right hand pylon so they provide almost full spherical coverage, and the processor is installed in the right hand pylon.

The AAR-60(V)2 provides the threat information to the Terma ALQ-213 Electronic Warfare Management System in the cockpit. The ALQ-213 selects the most efficient dispense sequence which it executes from the Flare-Up installation – also in the PIDS+ pylon.
