The BAE Systems Mk 36 SRBOC Chaff and Decoy Launching System is a shipboard, deck-mounted, 6-barreled mortar-type array that launches type-specific countermeasures against a variety of threats. Following launch and dispersion, Mk 36 SRBOC chaff and infrared countermeasures are designed to lure hostile missiles away from ships under attack by creating false target sets. The Mk 36 SRBOC is combat proven, fully supported, highly reliable, and cost effective. Over 1,000 systems are in service and deployed with the U.S. Navy ships and the fleets of 19 navies worldwide. As the original equipment manufacturer of the Mk 36 SRBOC, BAE Systems offers depot-level overhaul, repair, upgrade, maintenance, and fleet logistics support worldwide for the entire system.
