The TORNADO is a lightweight,
high-speed, mini-turbojet decoy system with autonomous navigation,
pre-strike decoy and fire & forget capabilities.
A TORNADO system consists of 8 decoy
aircraft, a pneumatic catapult launcher system and a portable ground
station for pre-programming mission profiles. The TORNADO is
designed for decoy missions where simulation of actual fighter
aircraft is required and the ground control stations provides
simultaneous multiple-vehicle flight capability with a range in
excess of 200 km.
