IDAS - Integrated Defensive Aids Suite Self-defence for airborne platforms

NH90 Saab EW dispensing


Self-defence for airborne platforms means knowing whether anyone is observing me or making me a target. That requires keeping track of every type of signal out there. Saab's IDAS is an EW system designed to provide self-defence in sophisticated, diverse and dense threat environments.

IDAS can be configured to become the high-end system with laser-warning, missile-approach-warning, as well as full multi-spectral detection capability for radar.


The system is fully integrated with the BOP-L countermeasures dispenser.

Your integration effort will be minimised: IDAS systems are already a fully integrated Defensive Aids System, DAS. Choosing IDAS therefore reduces the substantial integration non-recurring engineering effort required by federated DAS systems.


With Saab’s EW systems you become independent – you perform your own EW library maintenance. EWOS, EW Operation Support, is our tool for that. For further information, see downloads.
