Miniature Air-Launched Decoy-Jammer (MALD-N/J)
RI&S’s ADM-160 is a low-cost, expendable countermeasure decoy that deceives the most advanced enemy integrated air defense systems by duplicating the combat flight profiles and signatures of any aircraft.
It operates alone or in constellation formation closer to enemy radar than conventional Electronic Warfare (EW) and can be programmed to loiter over a particular area, jamming a certain target for an extended period of time. It can be pre-programmed as well as modified at any point up to launch.
