The AMPS-ML is based on the AMPS-M components with the additional integration of the ALTAS-2QB to the MCDU. This enables the system to track and warn of hostile laser sources aiming at airborne platforms.
ALTAS-2QB (Advanced Laser Threat Alerting System – 2 Quadrants with a Beam rider Detector) sensors identify laser range finders, laser target designators and laser beam rider sources.
The sensor identifies the following:
The result is in the increased safety of aircrews with features such as a short activation time, low false alarm rate and calculated high angle of arrival (AOA).
Protects against MAPNPADS threats and Laser Beam Rider threats
Fully autonomous system from detection to protection
Stand alone configuration - no interfaces required to mission or avionic systems
Wavelength coverage for pulsed laser threats and CW modulated beam rider threats
High accuracy of detection
False alarm suppression
System blanking on request from the MCDU
Short installation and integration time
