HIDAS-15

HIDAS-15

HIDAS, the Helicopter Integrated Defensive Aids System, was developed for and has been proven in theatre on the UK’s Apache attack helicopter. HIDAS utilises threat data from multi-spectral sensors, together with a user-defined Mission Data Set (MDS), to produce a comprehensive tactical picture of the operating environment.

 

The system offers unparalleled situational awareness to the aircrew and delivers optimum self-protection to the platform by rapidly identifying hostile weapon systems and initiating appropriate tactics and countermeasures.

 

For the AW159 Lynx, Airborne and Space Systems Division offers the HIDAS-15 variant.
