Leonardo & Thales to demonstrate DIRCM

Funding from UK MoD will support lab-based & field trials in early 2018

Leonardo and Thales are being contracted by the UK Ministry of Defence’s (MoD) Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) to demonstrate their Infra-Red (IR) protection system in trials in early 2018. The companies are currently engaged in development activities to bring together two of their most advanced products, Thales’ Elix-IR Threat Warning System and Leonardo’s MIYSIS Directed IR Counter-Measure (DIRCM) system.

Together, the systems will offer an end-to-end protection system for military and civil platforms, ranging from small helicopters to large troop transports/VIP platforms, IP platforms, against threatening missiles. Leonardo  and Thales  are  currently integrating the two systems so that hand-over between  threat-warning and threat-defeat is optimised to defeat the threat as  quickly as possible.
