Singapore Airshow 2016: RUAG Delivers 10 MISSIM Testing Units to Bundeswehr

RUAG has delivered ten MISSIM testing units to the German procurement agency BAAINBw as part of an agreement for self-protection systems. The system is delivered by RUAG Aviation’s competence centre and is, according to its developers, well suited for the operations carried out by the German Armed Forces’ (Bundeswehr) TORNADO fleet. As a 4-in-1 self-protection testing solution it provides simulation of radar, laser, missile, and Hostile Fire Indication (HFI) threats for a vast array of electronic warfare systems. RUAG Aviation will also be providing full life cycle support for MISSIM, including training, maintenance, performance analysis, calibration ,and recalibration.

RUAG’s MISSIM is a 4-in-1 testing solution for self-protection systems that simulates 4 different signatures. MISSIM can be used within a distance from 1 m (3 ft.) up to 20 m (66 ft.) from the self-protection system's sensors. (Photo: RUAG)

A key advantage of the solution is that it can also be easily aligned with even older systems and sensors,” Daniel Sulzer, Team Leader Marketing, Sales & Product Management Aviation Products at RUAG Aviation, stated. “The testing unit can be made combat-ready in no time at all, thus making it particularly suitable for deployment in demanding and fast-changing circumstances.”
