Elbit Systems to Build Infrared Countermeasures Systems for Asia Pacific Customer; Elad Aharonson Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting event

ElbitSystemsLogoElbit Systems Ltd. has received a two-year, $26.5 million contract to produce multi-spectral infrared countermeasures systems for installation in an Asia Pacific client's aircraft.

The infrared countermeasures system works to protect airliners from man portable air defense systems using a fiber laser-directed infrared countermeasure technology, Elbit said Wednesday.

Elad Aharonson, general manager of Elbit Systems ISTAR division, said the product provides “self-protection against IR-seeking weapons that pose a growing threat for aviation, as the proliferation and capabilities of MANPADs continue to advance.“

The system is designed based on Elbit's directed IR countermeasure systems for fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters.
