ISSYS - the Integrated Self-Protection System
The Integrated Self-Protection System (ISSYS) alerts helicopter crews to imminent threats, and deploys effective countermeasures for both ground and air-based attacks.
ISSYS accomplishes this by detecting a broad spectrum of radar and laser threat emissions, as well as UV emissions from approaching missiles. Between 2 and 16 modern chaff and flare dispensers are then deployed to decoy and neutralise approaching threats. ISSYS also supports custom user-programmed threat libraries.
