MASS Decoy Launcher fitted aboard Arialah Patrol Vessel of the UAE Coast Guards at NAVDEX 2017
|The automated MASS decoy system offers a unique degree of protection against modern, sensor-guided projectiles, covering all relevant wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum. MASS can be installed on any type of vessel. Moreover, it can be integrated into an existing command and weapon engagement system or operate as a standalone system.
Ordinarily, MASS consists of between one and six trainable launchers that can fire 32 special effect charges. Each launcher comes with a control unit and a data interface (Ethernet/RS422 or other standard interface).
Apart from the standard and OCR versions, four other variants are available as special options. The MASS_ISS (Integrated Sensor Suite) features integrated radar ESM systems as well as laser warning systems. The MASS_ATD (Anti Torpedo Decoy) provides a built-in anti-torpedo capability. Similar to the standard version, the MASS OMNI TRAP mmW is equipped with added millimetre wave radar technology for defeating the latest generation of guided missiles, while MASS_DUERAS employs additional Düppel radar decoy rockets.
On the market since 2002, MASS is already in service with numerous navies worldwide.
