PPI-50S type flares are used to protect aircraft (either helicopters or airplanes) against any guided missiles equipped with infrared seekers. Flares create false infrared targets and drag approached missiles to the distance safe for protected aircraft.

Flares are expendables and can be deployed on the aircraft equipped with different flare dispensers such as «Adros» KUV 26-50, KDS-50, and analogies.
