Lockheed Martin’s AN/AAR-56 Missile Launch Detector (MLD) is a mature, affordable, defensive system capable of providing long-range detection and declaration of both airborne and surface-launched threats. An MLD shipset for each aircraft is comprised of six sensors, three common interface processing cards, and six low observable window frame assemblies. Currently in production for the U.S. Air Force, the MLD is suited to high speed, fixed-wing aircraft. An established and tested algorithm provides maximum performance that matches the aircraft platform mission with threat environment. Lockheed Martin continues to advance the modular design of MLD with the development of both high resolution and multi-spectral sensors and an expanded algorithm that incorporates situational awareness and defensive Infrared Search and Track (IRST).
