A method for aiding a helicopter pilot to avoid a heat seeking missile includes the step of detecting a threat from a missile. The method also includes the step of reducing heat emanating from the helicopter's engine and rapidly reducing altitude. Then, when the threat has passed flight is resumed. A system for accomplishing the above is also described which simultaneously reduces engine temperature, deflects the exhaust gases, injects water into the exhaust gases, reduces altitude and launches a countermeasure.


What is claimed is: 1. A method for aiding a pilot to avoid being struck by a heat seeking missile, said method comprising the steps of: detecting a threat of a heat seeking missile; providing a computer for automatically reducing the heat emanating from a helicopter engine upon detection of the threat by a heat seeking missile; automatically rapidly reducing altitude; and automatically resuming flight when the missile threat has passed. 2. A method for aiding a pilot to avoid being struck by a heat seeking missile according to claim 1, in which the ...
