The system’s four-axis tracking device ensures that the maximum jamming energy is maintained on the target throughout the engagement, regardless of the aircraft maneuvering. The new device was developed by Northrop Grumman for integration into operational AN/AAQ-24(V) NEMESIS and the new Guardian systems.
This all-laser device can be installed on a wide range of platforms, both fast moving and rotary wing aircraft. The new device is compatible with existing NEMESIS systems, offering improved performance without airframe modifications. The system is also compatible with current AN/AAR-54(V) missile warning sensor (MWS) and will integrate into the company’s future Multi-Image MultiSpectral (MIMS) advanced two-color IR MWS currently in development.
