AN/ALE-55 Fiber-Optic Towed Decoy

AN/ALE-55 Fiber-Optic Towed Decoy
Robust RF self-protection

Today’s RF threat is growing, not only in numbers, but also in capability. BAE Systems’ AN/ALE-55 fiber-optic towed decoy is a radio frequency self-protection unit that can be used on any aircraft, from fighters to bombers to transports.


Unlike traditional decoys, such as straight-through repeaters, the fiber-optic towed decoy works synergistically with an aircraft’s onboard electronic warfare equipment to defeat radio frequency threats. It protects aircraft throughout the threat envelope, delivering three layers of defense.
