BAE Systems will present three different programs to the Army Aviation team at the Army Aviation Association of America’s Annual Professional Forum and Exhibition in Nashville, Tenn.

Each program will be showcased in press briefings. The first program presented will be the Boldstroke proposal for the U.S. Army’s CIRCM program. This proposal contains a directable infrared countermeasures suit designed to protect aircraft from infrared guided missiles and other evolving threats.

The second proposal is the Hostile Fire Indicator Flight tests. The tests will provide multiple indications of hostile fire, due to most aircraft being unable to detect and are vulnerable to small arms. Recent flight tests have detected the location of the hostile fire coming from a variety of small weapons.

The last proposal is the Q-Sight family of helmet mounted displays. The helmet improves safety, reduces pilot fatigue and improves situational awareness day or night.

The event is April 17-20.
