The 13-kg system comprises the SPS-20 RWR providing coverage up to 18-GHz, the SRS-25 superhet receiver for detecting CW, high-PRF and low-ERP radars and the LWS-20 laser warning receiver.
The successful MMIC/EW receiver, which was fabricated from Phase II MMIC components, has the same or better operating characteristics as conventional superhet receivers but is much smaller, lighter and less expensive.
The suite, developed in conjunction with Elisra and designed to counter both radar and laser threats, consists of the AN/ALR-90(V), a pulse RWR that detects radars in the C-through J-bands; the AN/APR-49(V), a superhet receiver for modern pulsed and nonpulsed radar threats; and the AN/AVR-3(V) laser warner.
