Russia is preparing a pre-contract work on delivery of onboard defense system President-S (ODS) to Algeria and Egypt.
"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) was quoted as saying by RIA Novosti at the Dubai Airshow-2015 Monday.
ODS prevents planes and helicopters from being hit by missiles, air defense and anti-aircraft artillery and is currently installed on Ka-52, Mi-28 and Mi-26 helicopters, the news agency said.
An ODS has a control device, a radar warning receiver station, laser and missile attack warning stations, an air dispenser, active radio-interference stations and a laser optical-electronic suppression station.
The ODS system can be located inside an airframe fuselage or as an external unit on helicopters and fixed wing aircraft.
