Description: The AN/AAR-60 MILDS (Missile Launch Detection System) is a passive missile warning system designed for installation on helicopters and aircraft. The AAR-60 consist of 4/6 uncooled UV (ultraviolet) sensors providing high resolution signals of potential incoming missiles, an external processing unit is not required. Each UV sensor weighs about 20 kg. It can be integrated with a wide range of countermeasures. The AAR-60 is exceptionally suitable against passive guided missiles, typically IR-guided missiles.

The AN/AAR-60(V)2 MILDS F is based on the MILDS sensor proven in service aboard Tiger, NH90, CH-47 and C-130 aircraft. The MILDS F is optimized for use on fighter aircraft against shoulder-fired infrared-guided missiles which cannot by detected by current warning systems. It can be installed either into pylons or into the fuselage of a fighter aircraft. The new warning system has a very low false alarm rate and fast detection as well. These two characteristics combined with automatic deployment of countermeasures ensures aircraft survivability in most time-critical situations. MILDS F passive, imaging sensor detects the UV radiation signature of an incoming missile. The system provides a 360-degree full coverage.

In July 2004, the Royal Danish Air Force ordered 30 MILDS F missile warning system to be integrated into its F-16 fighter aircraft fleet. The development, testing and integration work will be carried out by EADS Defense Electronics and Danish TERMA A/S. The Danish MILDS F will be installed in pylons and linked to the AN/ALQ-213 electronic warfare system. This solution will be marketed worldwide by EADS and TERMAS.
