HIDAS (Helicopter Integrated Defensive Aids System)

Helicopter Integrated Defensive Aids System (HIDAS) combines a radar and laser warning receiver, missile warning system and chaff and flares. It is fitted to UK Chinook and Puma helicopters, as well as UK and exported Apache helicopters. Using multi-spectral sensors and pre-loaded intelligence to produce comprehensive tactical pictures of the operational environment, HIDAS rapidly identifies hostile systems and initiates appropriate countermeasures.
