Elbit Systems To Implement Multi-Spectral Infrared Countermeasures On A Jet Aircraft
01:58 PM, December 16, 2015
Elbit Systems has won a $26.5 million contract to supply commercial multi-spectral infrared countermeasures (C-MUSIC) systems to be implemented on-board a jet aircraft of an Asia-Pacific nation.
C-Music is based on Directed Infrared Countermeasure (DIRCM) systems for fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters. C-MUSIC is an advanced countermeasure system that uses advanced fiber laser-directed infrared countermeasure technology to protect mid to large size airliners against heat-seeking shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles, also known as man portable air defense systems (MANPADs), the company said in a statement Wednesday.
The contract will be performed over a two-year period.
Elad Aharonson, General Manager of Elbit Systems ISTAR Division said, "C-MUSIC provides effective self-protection against IR-seeking weapons that pose a growing threat for aviation, as the proliferation and capabilities of MANPADs continue to advance. We hope more customers will follow in choosing our cutting-edge DIRCM solutions."
