Abstract

The report describes the possibilities a towed IR-decoy can have against MANPADS. Geometrical calculations is used to study the effect of a towed IR-decoy has at lodkon and to break tracking. The report Is to be used as reference for discussion forfurther studies of the concept. It will also be used to find input values for dynamic simulations. The result points out the difficulties for the concept when it comes to be used for lockon. When it comes to break the seekers track of the target the results are very promising.
