    According to reports, Russia may supply Algeria and Egypt with the onboard defense system President-S (ODS) used for military and civil aircraft.

    DUBAI (Sputnik) Russia may supply Algeria and Egypt with the onboard defense system President-S (ODS) used for military and civil aircraft, as pre-contract work on delivery is underway, the developer of the system said Monday.

    ODS is designed to protect planes and helicopters from being hit by missiles, air defense and anti-aircraft artillery. The defense system is currently installed on Ka-52, Mi-28 and Mi-26 helicopters.

    "A pre-contract work on the delivery of the onboard defense system President-S to Algeria and Egypt is ongoing," Igor Nasenkov, the first deputy general director of the Concern Radio-Electronic Technologies (KRET), told RIA Novosti at the Dubai Airshow-2015.

    ODS includes a control device, a radar warning receiver station, laser and missile attack warning stations, an air dispenser for aircraft consumables, settings for active radio-interference stations, as well as a laser optical-electronic suppression station.

    The system allows automatic detection of a rocket launching in the vicinity and initiates passive and active interference in infra-red and radio frequencies, to disrupt a rocket’s targeting system.

    The ODS system can be located inside an airframe fuselage or as an external unit on helicopters and fixed wing aircraft.
