Passive Airborne Warning System (PAWS-2)

The Raytheon/Elisra Passive Airborne Warning System (PAWS-2) is today’s state-of-the-art answer to the increasing infrared missile threat.

PAWS-2 was developed specifically to protect F-16 aircraft from air-to-air missiles and MANPADS. It has been installed and demonstrated to improve survivability in missile-dense environments.

PAWS-2 is unique in its ability to operate in the harsh environment conditions of the F-16 and in its multiple threat detection, tracking, and threat discrimination performance.
