President-S Onboard defense system (ODS)
The President-S Onboard defense system (ODS) provides counter measures against ground to air rockets, and also rockets from mobile air defense systems. The system automatically detects rocket launching and activates the use of passive and active interference in the infra-red and radio frequencies, which disrupts the rocket’s targeting system and forces it to retarget erroneous targets.
The President-S system is constructed in the form of modules (stations) which can be located inside the fuselage and as external units on the military and civil helicopters and fixed wing aircraft.(rostec.ru)
