Sustained, high Pmaw is a great way to open up and keep open hard-to-recruit alveolar compartments.
Following a downselection, three systems were chosen for the tests -- the PMAWS, the MILDS II and the Sanders (Nashua, NH) AN/AAR-57 Common Missile Warning System (CMWS).
The PMAWS is an infrared warning system, designed to provide self-protection for tactical and wide-body aircraft, helicopters and armored fighting vehicles.
The selection of the PMAWS means Northrop Grumman will now begin a nine-month aircraft-integration and test program, following which an 18-lot option is expected to be exercised by the MOD.
According to Westinghouse PMAWS Program Manager Skip Wagner, the PMAWS combines wide-FOV, high-resolution ultraviolet sensors with JIAWG-compatible processors to pinpoint time to intercept within one second and angle of arrival within 1 |degrees~.
The company's original ambition for the PMAWS, however, targets the Army's Advanced Threat Infrared Countermeasures Program (ATIRCM), which entered flight test aboard an EH-60 Quick Fix helicopter on March 19, with tests scheduled to continue through July 1994.
Sources also indicate the company is looking at its internally designed Passive Missile Approach Warning System (PMAWS).
