AN/ALE-39 Counter Measure Dispenser System
The AN/ALE-39 Counter Measure Dispenser System (CMDS) is capable of carrying up to 60 chaff, flare and/or radar jammer expendables. Employed on helicopters and transport aircraft, the AN/AAR-47 Missile Approach Warning System (MAWS) warns of threat missile approach by detecting radiation associated with the rocket motor and automatically initiates flare ejection. The Warning System provides attacking missile declaration and sector direction finding and will be interfaced directly to the ALE-39/47 countermeasures dispenser.
