Cases of TALD in travelers who contract the disease in the country they visit are mostly reported by the patient's country of residence independent of the quality of surveillance in the travel destination country.
The ITALD has a range of about 160 nmi, compared with 67 nmi for the TALD, and can make up to seven preprogrammed waypoints based on GPS-identified locations, allowing the device to zig and zag and otherwise imitate the movement of a fighter let, the radar cross-section of which the decoy is intended to resemble.
The ADM-141D Improved Tald (Itald) has a 0.79 kN Teledyne Continental J700-CA-400 turbojet, and a range of up to 280 km.
Aside from its air-to-air weapons, the lightweight General Dynamics M61A2 20mm Gatling cannon, four types of mines, the IMI Tald decoy and the Boeing AGM-84D Harpoon, the Super Hornet is cleared to use the seven-tube 70mm LAU-68 rocket launcher, the 225-kg Mk 82, the 450-kg Mk83 and 900-kg Mk 84 bombs, the 340 kg Mk 77 fire bomb, the 250 kg CBU-72 with three BLU-73/B fuel-air explosive submunitions, the 222-kg Mk 20 Rockeye submunition dispenser with 247 M118 bomblets, and its replacement, the 340-kg CBU-59, with 717 BLU-77 bomblets.
Also showing promise are launched decoys, such as the Tactical Air Launched Decoy (TALD), produced originally by Brunswick Defense (Skokie, IL) and now by Israel Military Industries (IMI, Tel Aviv, Israel); the Improved TALD, also from IMI; and the Northrop Grumman (San Diego, CA) Miniature Air Launched Decoy.
Al-Nusra gatherings in Tald, Houla, Borj Qai, Keisin and al-Rastan were massively bombed by the Syrian jets, pinning down the militants behind their defense lines.
At the high end, IMI is the developer of the Tactical Air-Launched Decoy (TALD) glider used to good effect by the US Navy in the Gulf War and the new jet-powered Improved TALD (I-TALD).
Free-flying decoys include the Tactical Air Launched Decoy (TALD) glider, the improved, self-propelled ITALD, and the under-development Miniature Air Launched Decoy (MALD).
The original Samson decoy has been used operationally in the Middle East, and TALD (Tactical Air-Launched Decoy) uses later technology and offers improved performance and payload.
An heir to the TALD, which was used in the Gulf War to confuse and saturate Iraqi air-defense networks with false targets, the smaller, inexpensive, but powered MALD will be carded by F-16-sized aircraft and, launched ahead of the aircraft into possible SAM territory, will generate an F-16-sized signature to prompt air-defenses to go live and shoot.
One "odd duck" device that has already proven its ability to mimic actual aircraft is the Tactical Air Launched Decoy (TALD) and its Improved TALD sibling.
