Smart D2 also builds on the company's proven ALE-47 Airborne Countermeasures Dispenser System, a trusted and highly reliable survivability system that operates on a wide variety of military aircraft worldwide.
Away from Germany, countermeasures dispensers acquired by the Koninklijke Luchtmacht (Royal Netherlands Air Force) are being enhanced, following the news in March that the force will receive upgrades to its Terma PIDSU pylons outfitting its General Dynamics/Lockheed Martin F-16A/B Fighting Falcon fighters.
Like the F-15s in US and Saudi service, these are equipped with the Tactical Electronic Warfare Suite, which combines the AN/ALR-56C RWR, the Northrop Grumman AN/ALQ- 135 RF jammer and the BAE Systems AN/ALE-47 countermeasures dispenser. The F-15K has an updated version of the RWR and jammer; the latter uses microwave power modules that are smaller and lighter than the earlier transmitters, allowing the system to be repackaged within the airframe to locate the jamming hardware closer to the antennas.
Mikes, meanwhile, will compete with its Smart Countermeasures Dispenser System (SCMDS), an expandables-management system designed and built by the company itself.

The AIDEWS consists of the Advanced Threat Radar Warning Receiver (ATRWR), Advanced Threat Radar Jammer (ATRJ), and Advanced Airborne Radio Frequency Expendables (AARFE) -- even more capable than standard US Air Force F-16C/D Block 50/52 package of the AN/ALR-56M RWR, AN/ALQ-131 or AN/ALQ-184 RF ja mmer, and AN/ALE-47 countermeasures dispenser. It is interesting that Poland was also offered a wide variety of weapons, including the newest types, like AIM-9X Super Sidewinder, AIM-120C-5 Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM), AGM-154C Joint Stand-Off Weapon (JSOW), GPS-guided Joint Directed Attack Munition (JDAM), Paveway III laser-guided bombs, AGM-65G imaging-infrared-guided missiles, and many other types of both smart and dumb munitions (nearly 100 in all).
The HEWS consists of five subsystems: a missile-warning system (MWS), a countermeasures dispenser, a laser-warning receiver (LWR), a radar-warning receiver (RWR) and jammer, and a central processing unit (CPU).
The Boeing spokesman confirmed that the fighters for Korea will be equipped with the TEWS, which consists of the BAE Systems (Yonkers, NY) AN/ALR-56C radar-warning receiver (RWR), the Northrop Grumman (Rolling Meadows, IL) AN/ALO-135 radar jammer, and the BAE Systems (Austin, TX) AN/ALE-45 countermeasures dispenser. This is no real surprise, however, as the TEWS is the self-protection suite aboard the F-15s flown by the US Air Force, the Royal Saudi Air Force, and Japan's Air Self-Defense Force.
