Airborne Decoy System (ADS)

ADS103, an air-deployed Off board Corner Reflector (OCR) passive RF airborne decoy system, designed to protect naval ships from RF missile attacks

Our new product developed by IrvinGQ in partnership with Rheinmetall, Germany

ADS103 is a Corner Reflector-based decoy, which offers navies an additional RF countermeasure to complement chaff and active decoys, and provides a highly effective layer of defence against agile missile threats.

ADS103 benefits from the combined experience of two of the industry’s leading manufacturers of ship protection systems, and has proven highly effective in demonstration trials.


MASS_OCR offers another layer of protection for ships against RF-seeking anti-ship missiles, and can be used in conjunction with FDS3 or with other soft-kill passive or active countermeasures. MASS_OCR is lightweight, reloadable and highly effective and significantly extends the capability of the industry-leading MASS launcher.
