11 February 2020

Israel’s Elbit Systems announced on 10 February that it has been awarded contracts worth approximately USD136 million to provide customers in Asia-Pacific countries with airborne, laser-based directional infrared countermeasures (DIRCM) systems.

The Haifa-based company said that under the contracts, which will be performed over a four-year period, Elbit Systems will equip “fleets of Airbus and Boeing aircraft” with DIRCM systems from its Multi Spectral Infrared Countermeasures (MUSIC) family, including the company’s infra-red missile warning systems.

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 fleet.
