Abstract : This thesis evaluates the protection provided by towed decoys deployed by an aircraft during an engagement against an anti-air missile equipped with a monopulse seeker. The research emphasizes the use of passive decoys. Many of the operational parameters required before the deployment of towed-decoy are investigated, including the strength of reflection, the tether length, the direction of release, under different missile incoming directions. This thesis evaluated two reflection cases. One is for both target and decoy being point reflectors. The other is for an extended target and a point reflected decoy. The protection envelopes for different engagement scenarios of each reflection case is obtained.
