The Royal Norwegian Air Force (RNoAF) has awarded a contract to Cassidian to deliver missile warning sensors for its F-16 fighter aircraft.

Under a multimillion-euro contract, Cassidian Electronics will deliver 100 AN/AAR-60(V)2 missile launch detection system fighter (MILDS F) sensors to the RNoAF.

A passive imaging sensor, the MILDS F can be easily installed in pylons, pods or in the fuselage of fighter aircraft to detect the UV radiation signature of approaching missiles.

The system includes several sensors that are linked to a countermeasure signal processor to provide full spherical coverage and rapid reaction.

The system will enhance the F-16’s protection against anti aircraft missiles, such as shoulder-fired infrared-guided missiles.

Cassidian will complete the delivery of 100 MILDS F by 2011.
