According to a recent press release, Slovenian company Carboteh promises the unveiling of a revolutionary approach to air defence. This is  Battlefield Anti-aircraft Non-lethal VSHORAD System (BANS)

BANS reportedly introduces effective anti-aircraft defence without a single shot being fired. The light shoulder weapon simulates a missile launch pattern that digitally stimulates an aircraft’s missile launch warning and detection system and triggers its alarm. The aircraft is then forced to dispense countermeasures. Extensive use of flares leaves the combat aircraft vulnerable to anti-aircraft missiles. Pilots must then either abort their mission or remain under VSHORAD missiles.
