Analysis on MANPADS

MANPADS (Man Portable Air Defense Systems) are relatively small weapons with potential huge effects. They can be used especially for asymmetrical warfare and terrorist attacks, for instance on civilian aircraft, with devastating results. On behalf of the German Foreign Office, BICC investigates the effects of these weapons to contribute to a threat analysis and the evaluation of international control regimes and the international security discourse.
