Description: The BAE Systems Echidna is an Electronic Warfare Self Protection (EWSP) suite designed for the Australian Army's CH-47 Chinook and UH-60 Blackhawk fleets of helicopters under project Echidna. Its capabilities include detection, identification and tracking of emitters. The basic version designed for installation onto UH-60 helicopters includes radar warning and missile warning receivers (AN/AAR-60 MILDS), countermeasures dispensing system, dedicated controls, and integrated EWSP display. Additional sensors and countermeasures can be provided to larger platforms. As of early 2009, BAE Systems Australia was carrying out flight testing with an Echidna pod mounted on a Lear Jet as test bed platform.
