Saab IDAS to Protect H225M CARACALs

H225M helicopters self-protection via IDAS

Airbus Helicopters contracted Saab for the Integrated Defensive Aids Suite (IDAS) for H225M CARACAL multirole utility helicopters.

Saab’s IDAS electronic warfare self-protection system protects the crew by enhancing platform survivability in sophisticated, diverse and dense threat environments. The system provides timely warning against radar, laser and infrared (IR) guided threats and automatically deploys the appropriate countermeasures.

Production of the IDAS self-protection system will take place in 2017- 2018 at Saab Grintek Defence premises in Centurion, South Africa, with deliveries scheduled for 2020.

The system has a long and successful history with proven capability on many airborne platforms such as the Saab 2000, Leonardo A109, Super LYNX 300, Boeing CH-47 CHINOOK, Denel Rooivalk and Oryx, Airbus Helicopters COUGAR, PUMA, and Super PUMA, NH Industries NH90, Lockheed Martin C-130 and L100 HERCULES, and Sukhoi Su-30MKM. Deliveries are ongoing for the Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd. (HAL) Advanced Light Helicopter DHRUV.
