Infrared Baringa missile warning systems test set

The Infrared (IR) Baringa is a confidence test set used to stimulate one- or two-color IR missile warning systems including the AN/ AAR 44, AN/AAR 58, Passive Airborne Warning System (PAWS) and future designs. A rugged, battery-operated test set that can be handheld or supported on a simple tripod, the IR Baringa is programmed to radiate spectral and temporal, classified and unclassified missile IR plume signatures. It can be operated from typical standoff ranges of 5-15 meters (m) or 15-50 feet (ft.) from the missile warning system.
