In addition to the latest generation Thales Radar Warning Receiver and an EADS Laser Warning Receiver, all Tigers are equipped with a missile launch detector--the Milds AN/AAR-60 from EADS.
BAE SYSTEMS laser warning receiver integrates world-class sensor performance into the existing hardware of ATK's much-improved missile warning sensor.
Laser-guided threats can often be detected and countered by using a laser warning receiver. Inertial- and GPS-guided weapons are generally not effective against ground combat vehicles.
Perkin-Elmer products include the AVR-2 laser warning receiver.
Briefings on specific systems and programs include the AAR-54 and AAR-57 passive missile-warning systems; Common Missile Warning System; Naval Research Lab (NRL) on TACAIR Directional IRCM and Shipboard Littoral IRCM; Air Force Aeronautical Systems Center on Large Aircraft IR Countermeasures (LAIRCM); US Army Communications-Electronics Command on AVR-2 airborne laser detector, WR-1 laser warning receiver and the Advanced Threat Infrared Countermeasures system; and a SOCOM briefing on SOF DIRCM.
Briefings on speci fic systems and programs include the following: the AAR-54 & AAR-57 passive missile-warning systems; Common Missile Warning System (CMWS); Navy TACAIR Directional IRCM; Large Aircraft IR Countermeasures (LAIRCM) Shipboard IRCM, AVR-2 airborne laser detector WR-1 laser warning receiver and the Advanced Threat Infrared Countermeasures (ATIRCM) system.
S pecific systems and programs to be briefed include the AN/AAR-54 and AN/AAR-57 passive missile-warning systems, the Common Missile Warning System (CMWS), Navy TACAIR Directional IRCM, Large Aircraft IR Countermeasures (LAIRCM), Shipboard IRCM, the AVR-2 airborne laser detector, the VVR-1 laser warning receiver and the Advanced Threat Infrared Countermeasures (ATIRCM) system.
The US Navy and Marine Corps will standardize the Alliant/Lockheed Martin AN/AAR-47 missile warning set across their rotary-wing fleets and will upgrade the passive detector with a more capable processor and incorporate the functionality of the Raytheon AN/AVR-2A laser warning receiver (for more on the AAR-47, see "NAVAIR Seeking to Upgrade AN/AAR-47," JED, June 1998, p.
* The UK: Under the original [pounds]71 million HIDAS contract, the British MOD tasked Marconi with providing its Sky Guardian 2000 radar warning receiver (RWR), the associated suite controller and the company's Series 1223 laser warning receiver (LWR), which Marconi claims can provide full beamrider (as in laser-beamriding missile) protection.
Integrated with the Hughes AVR-2A laser warning receiver (an upgrade to the AVR-2 that inserts low-noise power supplies, low-noise circuitry and some radiometric enhancements to increase system sensitivity), the suites will provide warning across the entire spectrum of known - and predicted - antihelicopter missile threats.
According to information provided by TRADEC, the system sensors included a laser warning receiver (although unidentified by TRADEC, the AVR-2 seems a likely candidate) and a radar warning receiver, probably from AlL, which is under contract as part of the effort.
