This new MASS option can replace chaffs and is designed to defeat even the most up-to-date developments in anti-ship RF missile seekers, including those fitted with chaff discerning algorithms (a Rheinmetall represenntative mentionned the C705 from China as an example).

According to Rheinmetall, MASS is the world’s number one naval countermeasure system, reliably protecting surface combatants from advanced anti-ship missiles as well as asymmetric threats in littoral environments. The latest version of MASS is on display at IDEX 2015. Encompassing the full spectrum of naval air and anti-submarine warfare threats, MASS now provides new capabilities such as a millimetre wave (MMW) decoy capability, the MMW sensor SME100+ for MMW anti-ship missile detection as well as the off-board corner reflector and acoustic decoy CANTO for anti-torpedo defence. These capabilities have been developed in cooperation with different defence contractors.

The UAE Navy selected thhe MASS naval countermeasure system for its Baynunah, Falaj 2 and Abu Dhabi classes of vessels.
