Sabena to Offer DIRCM System to Airbus Corporate Jet Customers

Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) and Sabena technics are to cooperate in proposing self-protection systems (SPSs) for Airbus corporate jets.

Each SPS would combine a directional infra-red countermeasure (DIRCM) system with installation on an Airbus corporate jet.

SPSs will initially be offered for the ACJ320 Family.

“This is a great new opportunity to work with ACJ on aircraft protection, which builds on an extensive portfolio of business- aviation services that includes cabin-outfitting and maintenance,” said Sabena technics Senior Vice president Sales and Business Development, Daniel Soltani. “We strongly believe that our ability to install and certificate these systems with airworthiness authorities, such as EASA and the FAA, is a key driver of success.”

An SPS offers protection against missiles fired from man-portable air defence systems (MANPADS), which are the most widespread missile-threat today.

Self-defence systems are already in service on some Airbus corporate jets.

“Offering self-protection is yet another way in which we care for our customers, and expands and consolidates the widespread range of modern aircraft and services that ACJ offers,” said ACJ President, Benoit Defforge.

Around 200 Airbus corporate jets are in service worldwide, flying on every continent, including Antarctica.
