APP-50

 

APP-50 - Chaff/Flare Dispensing System 

 

The APP-50 passive jamming automatic units (decoy dispensers) are designed to protect aircraft from engagement in flight by airborne missile systems and air defence missile/artillery systems by dispensing radar/IR interference rounds. The dispensers are installed onboard aircraft, and can be controlled manually (from the control panel) or automatically. The APP-50 dispensers can be delivered in two variants: APP-50P for autonomous operation; APP-50A for integration into onboard electronic support systems. The dispenser can launch rounds (up to three types) in continuous, salvo, combined and emergency modes. Launch time intervals, number of salvos and number of rounds in one salvo (from 1 to 4) are set by operator or by the electronic support system.

 

 

The APP-50 export delivery set includes: chaff/flare dispenser; operational documentation; single and group sets of spare parts, tools and accessories; test equipment; repair and maintenance equipment. Specific delivery set is customer-defined.
