The DAS is designed for protection against not only air defense missiles, but air-launched missiles and antiaircraft guns as well. The President-S DAS comprises the control device, radar and laser warning receivers, missile attack warning receiver, radio-frequency and infrared decoys and flares, an active jammer, a non-coherent electro-optical jammer and a laser jammer. In addition to the above, airlifter and long-range bombers can be fitted out with a towed active radar decoy.

A multifunction indicator and its confirmation device may optionally be mounted on the individual types of aircraft.

Structurally, the equipment of the President-S is made in blocks (stations) that can be stored inside the fuselage of the plane (helicopters) and on external sites.

The President-S gives the commands for counter resource control and the exchange of information with the onboard systems of the helicopter (plane) according to GOST 18977-79 and RTM 1495-75, including GOST V 26 765.52-86 (MIL STD 1553 B).
