The Decoy Launching System (ODLS) is a remote controlled system suitable for launching different types of multipurpose ammunition. Special versions can fire rockets of caliber other than 105-mm - 118-mm which represents the standard size. The ODLS is designed for accurate deployment of decoys, thus providing passive defence for a ship against radar and IR homing missiles and can also be employed in shore bombardment role.

The main characteristics of the ODLS are:

  • Automatic  selection  of the type of rocket to be fired;
  • Continuous  engagement  action thanks to rapid reloading of launching units;
  • Complete automatic  control by the ship s EWS;
  • Safe operation  under all operational conditions;
  • No deck penetration.
