HENSOLDT Equips Ukrainian Helicopters with Self-protection Sensors

HENSOLDT is once again equipping helicopters of the Ukrainian armed forces with state-of-the-art detection and self-protection sensors. The order includes further AMPS (Airborne Missile Protection System) self-protection solutions. The order value is in the double-digit million range. HENSOLDT delivered 16 AMPS self-protection solutions to the Ukrainian armed forces for the first time in June last year.
AMPS is a flexible, stand-alone self-protection solution for helicopters and aeroplanes. Thanks to its modular design, it can be easily configured to meet specific operational requirements and for different mission profiles. AMPS components are the Missile Launch Detection Sensor (MILDS), an AMPS Control and Display Unit (ACDU) and the active confirmation system (MACS), which determines the distance and speed of detected missiles and eliminates false alarms. The Counter Measure Dispensing Systems (CMDS) already installed on the helicopters can continue to be operated with the current AMPS configuration.
A high percentage of aircraft losses in recent operational areas were caused by infrared surface-to-air missiles (IR SAMs). In addition, laser and radar threats are increasingly common in theatres of operations. To reliably detect these threats, AMPS can be configured with missile, laser, and radar warning systems to ensure the best possible protection through rapid detection.
