AbstractA false target deployment system including an inflatable and collapsible decoy packaged in a munition for deploying the decoy in its collapsed state from an actual target at risk due to a potential threat. The decoy is rapidly inflated during deployment and the decoy includes coatings and/or other devices for emulating the infrared, radar and/or laser reflectivity characteristics of the actual target thereby providing a false target for the threat.
