UK defence and security electronic system specialist SEA unveiled its trainable decoy launcher system at the 2019 Defence and Security Equipment International exhibition (DSEI 2019) in London.

The new trainable decoy launcher system is capable of a wide range of movement and can rapidly deliver complex patterns of mixed decoys around platforms.

The system, which has been developed in partnership with fellow Cohort subsidiaries Chess Dynamics and MASS, has been designed to protect surface ships from current and future high-speed missile and torpedo threats. According to SEA, it features a “sophisticated threat-processing engine” that provides recommendations and responses to a wide range of threats more rapidly than traditional systems, minimising the need to manoeuvre the ship.

“This is about last-minute protection for ships that are being attacked by missiles,” Peter Hodgkinson, SEA business development director for UK and Europe, told Jane’s at DSEI on 11 September.
