In November Elbit Systems And NATO Conduct successful Airbus Passenger Jet Missile Protection Trial



Israel-based high technology company Elbit Systems Ltd. announced Wednesday that it was awarded approximately $26.5 million contract to supply advanced DIRCM Systems to an Asia-Pacific country. The contract, valued at approximately $26.5 million, will be performed over a two-year period.


Amid concern that terrorists may shoot down a passenger jet, Elbit and NATO successfully demonstrated warning system on Airbus C295

Under the deal, Elbit Systems would supply commercial multi-spectral infrared countermeasures or C-MUSIC systems to be implemented onboard a wide body jet aircraft of a country in the Asia-Pacific region.

C-MUSIC is based on Elbit Systems’ MUSIC family of Directed Infrared Countermeasure or DIRCM systems for fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters. It 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.
