Elbit To Equip Boeing, Airbus Planes with Countermeasures, Missile Warning Systems
Direct Infra-Red Counter Measure (DIRCM) system

Elbit Systems has won a contract worth $136 million to equip Boeing and Airbus aircraft with airborne laser Direct Infra-Red Counter Measure (DIRCM) and missile warning systems.

Under the terms of the contracts, the Asia-pacific customer’s aircraft will be armed with DIRCM systems from the MUSIC family, including the company's infra-red missile warning systems, Elbit Systems said in a statement Monday.

These contract awards follow recent awards to install DIRCM systems onboard Airbus A400 aircraft of the German Air Force and onboard NATO's Airbus A330 Multinational Multi-Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) fleet.

The company plans to perform the contracts over a four-year period.
