Our flexible self-protection system: ISSYS POD
Adopted by several European air forces, ISSYS POD was developed by RUAG Aviation in cooperation with SAAB. It is inherently versatile: specially designed Plug-On-Devices (PODs) are mounted on the hard points of helicopters and selected fixed-wing aircraft, enabling ISSYS to be installed within just 30 minutes by two people.
This allows for easy sharing across different platforms, including older platforms no longer compatible with fixed installations, enables equipping platforms with ISSYS on a per-mission basis and significantly reduces costs per aircraft and MRO efforts.
EASA certification is possible for the use of ISSYS POD on civil or special mission helicopters, e.g. for protecting air ambulances.
