Airborne defense suite for helicopters 'Amulet'


The airborne defense suite (ADS) 'Amulet' is intended to provide the protection of helicopters:

  • Against all types of Air-to-Air (AAM) and Surface-to-Air (SAM) guided missiles armed with active (semi-active) radar seekers.
  • Against all types of Air-to-Air (AAM) and Surface-to-Air (SAM) guided missiles armed with electro-optical and IR-seekers.
  • Against ground-based air defense systems, employing command-guided SAMs.
  • Against anti-tank guided missiles, RPG grenades.
  • Against anti-helicopter mines.

The ADS 'Amulet' also provides the protection of the helicopter against the so-called 'friendly fire' of the air intercept missile systems as well as ground-based air defense systems.


Main advantages and singularity:

  • Automatic (with no pilot/operator's input) jamming generation against all hostile illuminating RESs.
  • No restrictions on the number of simultaneously jammed on-board and ground-based RESs.
  • Total exclusion of the ADS carrier's (the helicopter fitted with the ADS AMULET) self-illumination.
  • The ADS operates with no restrictions on the combat tactics of the helicopter under protection.
  • Full electromagnetic compatibility with self radio-electronic equipment of the helicopter under protection.
