Aircraft self-protection against radar threats SKY BUZZER is a high-power, radar jamming and deception decoy to protect both fighter and transport/mission aircraft. It is effective against a wide range of radars (including monopulse) by producing angular errors in target tracking radar or missile seeker heads. The jamming techniques are generated onboard by an advanced Digital Radio Frequency Memory (DRFM) and transferred to the decoy via a fiberoptic cable. SKY BUZZER does not affect the aerodynamic behaviour of the aircraft. It can be deployed by parachute (for later recovery) or retrieved during flight by an active winch. The high effectiveness of SKY BUZZER has been successfully approved on Tornado, F-4 Phantom and other aircraft.
