Advancing OEWS aircraft survivability equipment to defeat missile threats
Leveraging more than 40 years of EO/IR expertise, BAE Systems' next-generation aircraft survivability equipment protects helicopters, jets, turboprops and their respective crews from a range of infrared (IR) and ballistic hostile fire threats. Available for use by all U.S. Defense Service agencies, including Special Operations, our solutions are easy to install and cost-effective. Benefiting from years of successful development and customer input, we provide highly reliable, versatile Optical Electronic Warfare Systems (OEWS) based on specified multi-domain mission and platform requirements.
Increasingly sophisticated infrared-guided missiles are a dangerous reality. These lethal threats are an ever-present challenge to mission success in today's multi-domain operations and peacekeeping scenarios. With over four decades of experience and around 500 infrared countermeasures experts on staff, BAE Systems has set the standard for developing state-of-the-art OEWS solutions. Our Worrell/Weeks Aircrew Protection Center and cutting-edge Jam Lab enable our teams to perform rigorous analyses of aircraft survivability equipment in an operationally representative environment. Our strong relationship with customers allows us to develop greater awareness and understanding, while continually evolving products based on user feedback. We're proud that our customers rely on BAE Systems' expertise, dedication, and commitment to provide them with innovative, next-generation equipment for the future.
BAE Systems' tailored aircraft protection solutions include a modular family of OEWS systems – systems that automatically sense, process, and respond to IR threats. These systems improve situational awareness while helping aircrews execute missions in complex hostile environments. Depending on your platform and mission needs, our Optical Electronic Warfare Systems can be integrated to create an even more effective layered suite of protections.
