Description: The Defense System President-S, also referred to as BKO, is a fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft protection system designed to defeat incoming infrared-guided missiles by laser and radiofrequency/electronic jamming of the missile's seeker. President-S is intended to defeat primarily man-portable air defense systems (MANPADS) such as the Russian Igla and the United Sates Stinger shoulder-launched surface-to-air missiles. KRET and Ekran tested this system firing Igla missiles at a President-S equipped Mi-8 helicopter fixed up on a special rig. During the tests, several missiles were fired from a distance of 1,000 meters with no missile reaching its target due to the highly effective jamming. The President-S system includes: control unit; radar warner; laser warner; missile attack warner; countermeasures dispenser of chaff cartridges, cartridges of infrared radiation, single use cartridges with transmitters, interference; no coherent optical-electronic suppression station; LSOEP laser jamming system; and SAP radiofrequency jammer. The President-S is one of the best aircraft protection systems developed for the Russian Armed Forces.

Optionally, the BKO President-S modular missile protection system can be provided with the ABRL active towed radar decoy for large transport aircraft and tactical airplanes. Besides, the protection system can defeat more sophisticated air-to-air and surface-to-air missiles.
