Advanced Countermeasures Electronic System (ACES)

Secure electronic shield against anti-aircraft missiles

Raytheon's Advanced Countermeasures Electronic System is a fully integrated electronic warfare (EW) suite with robust situational awareness and powerful jamming capabilities. ACES represents the most modern EW digital technology available, providing a secure electronic shield against anti-aircraft missiles and threats from enemy radars.

Designed to detect, identify and counter contemporary threats in a high density environment, ACES integrates Raytheon's ALQ-187(V)2 jammer, the ALR-93 radar warning receiver and the ALE-47 countermeasures dispenser system — offering an effective and dependable advanced electronic countermeasures self-protection system for the F-16.

Built on a legacy of EW suites for the F-16 platform, including Raytheon's Advanced Self-Protection Integrated Suite (ASPIS and ASPIS II), ACES reflects the next generation of advanced EW for the F-16. Legacy efforts and core elements of ACES have proved highly effective against real threats in acceptance flight trials, combat exercises and spontaneous defense of sovereign territory.
