Elbit Systems demonstrated its MUSIC family of Directed Infrared Countermeasure (DIRCM) systems, integrated with IR based Passive Airborne Warning System (PAWS) on an Airbus C295 aircraft.
During the tests, a C295 aircraft with an operationally installed Elbit EW self-protection suite, consisting of the DIRCM system and the PAWS demonstrated the capability to detect, acquire, track and jam the trial test equipment on the ground, under extreme conditions, the company said in a statement Monday.
The initial assessment of the results highlighted that the system has the capability to successfully jam MANPADS (infra- red, ground to air heat seeking Man-Portable Missiles) from the first, second and third generation, using generic NATO jam codes.
The demonstration was a joint project of Elbit Systems and Airbus Defence & Space (Spain).
The DIRCM systems provide protection for aircraft from MANPADS. These systems integrate an advanced fiber laser technology together with a high rate thermal tracking camera and a small, highly dynamic mirror turret to provide effective, reliable and affordable protection to all types of aircraft and under all operational conditions.
The PAWS family of combat proven missile warning systems uses IR to reliably and rapidly detect the most advanced threats in all flight conditions.
