Description: The AN/ALE-47 is a countermeasures suite to protect rotary and fixed wing aircraft against missile threats. It is fully reprogrammable, computer-controlled and dispenses electronic and infrared decoys to blind incoming missile's seeker from its intended target.
The ALE-47 is an improved version of proven ALE-40 countermeasures dispenser. The system fits seamlessly into the full range of fighter and transport aircraft and helicopters.
The US Navy aircraft are the primary user platform related to the AN/ALE-47 countermeasures dispenser. The US Air Force and the US Army also have the ALE-47 countermeasures suite in its inventory protecting rotary and fixed wing aircraft.
The AN/ALE-47 TACDS countermeasures dispenser is the standard for new aircraft and retrofit of older ALE-39/-40/-45 dispenser systems. The M212 countermeasure flare produced by ATK under the Advanced Infrared Countermeasure Munitions (AIRCMM) program can be loaded in ALE-47.
