Civil Aircraft Missile Protection System or CAMPS is an infrared countermeasure against infrared-homed anti-aircraft missiles, specifically designed to defend civilian aircraft flying under 15,000 feet (4,600 m) against MANPADS.

The system was developed by Saab Avitronics, Chemring Countermeasures and Naturelink Aviation.[1]

The decoys use a pyrophoric substance that burns at a relatively low temperature,[2] thereby avoiding any fire safety concerns associated with conventional pyrotechnic military flares, such as those used by a similar Israeli system.[3] The onboard processor uses neural network pattern recognition algorithms to classify potential threats detected by its infrared sensors.[2] The system was successfully demonstrated at the Overberg Test Range in March 2007.[1]
