Nulka & Anti-Ship Missile (ASM) Electronic Countermeasures (ECM) Systems

Nulka & Anti-Ship Missile (ASM) Electronic Countermeasures (ECM) Systems

The joint Australian/U.S. Nulka (an aboriginal word meaning “be quick!”) active missile decoy has been produced for most major U.S. Navy warships, integrated into the AN/SLQ-32(V) electronic warfare system. The first installation began in 1994. It has now also been integrated into the SSDS (Ship Self Defense System). Nulka has been installed on the CG-47, DDG-51, FFG-7, LSD-41, and LSD-49 classes, with installation on nine CVNs beginning in FY14. Canada and Australia also operate Nulka. More than 1,000 Nulka decoy payloads have been delivered to the US and Australian Navies.

APR-39 Review and Forecast

APR-39 Review and Forecast

More than 10,000 AN/APR-39s have been produced over the past 50 years, but production slowed with planned new generations of integrated EW suites for helicopters – last century – including the US Army’s SIRFC and ATIRCM.

The deployment of AH-64A Apaches to Kosovo as early as 1999 showed that Apache pilots “had lost confidence” in the APR-39. The Apaches never went into battle, in large part due to the perceived inadequacy of the ECM suite. Again in 2001 in Afghanistan, Army pilots expressed little faith in the APR-39. The Army anxiously awaited the next generation of helicopter EW.

Boeing 747: Eighth Time's the Charm?

Richard Aboulafia

Boeing 747: Eighth Time's the Charm?

More a legend than a plane. King of the skies, tyrant of the air, occasional destroyer of airline balance sheets. This magnificent beast continues its long reign, knowing that the world's attention has shifted towards Toulouse, and Airbus's misguided effort to wrest control of the shrinking jumbo market away from Boeing. Through the '90s and early 2000s, new variant proposals were mooted and fell by the wayside, forgotten like a growing child's abandoned toys.

BVS-1(V) Photonics Mast Review and Forecast

The AN/BVS-1(V) Photonics Mast is a submarine non-hull penetrating multi-sensor periscope providing all-weather visual, IR, and TV imaging for data collection and image enhancement.

Future IRST Systems

Future IRST Systems

In the mid-2000s, Lockheed Martin resurrected its 1990s-era AN/AAS-42(V) IRST (Infrared Search and Track) system from the US Navy F-14D Tomcat fighter, initially for South Korea and Singapore’s new F-15Ks and F-15SGs, as part of their Sniper/Tiger Eyes/IRST suite. More recently, Saudi Arabia also bought an upgraded AAS-42 system for their new F-15SA and F-15SA conversion aircraft, as part of their Sniper ATP/LANTIRN ER/IRST suite.
