Our flexible self-protection system: Integrated Self-Protection Plug-on Device
Adopted by several European air forces, Integrated Self-Protection Plug-on Device 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 Integrated Self-Protection 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 Integrated Self-Protection on a per-mission basis and significantly reduces costs per aircraft and MRO efforts.
EASA certification is possible for the use of Integrated Self-Protection Plug-on Device on civil or special mission helicopters, e.g. for protecting air ambulances.
