Directed IR Countermeasures

The threat of MANPADS (ground to air heat seeking man-portable missiles) has grown considerably over the last few years.  Elbit Systems Intelligence and Electro-optics  – Elop’s Multi Spectral Infrared Countermeasures (MUSIC™) systems are a family of  Directed IR Countermeasures (DIRCM) solutions for protecting aircraft against heat seeking ground to air missiles.
 


These systems integrate advanced fiber laser technology together with a high rate thermal camera and a small, highly dynamic mirror turret to provide effective, reliable and affordable protection to all types of aircraft and under the full range of operational conditions.
