Elbit Systems Wins New DIRCM Self-Protection Contracts

Elbit Systems has been awarded two contracts for its Music family of directed infra-red countermeasures (DIRCM) airborne multi-spectral self-protection systems.

The first contract is a follow-on contract from an undisclosed Asian country, to supply its mini Music systems for the customers Blackhawk helicopter fleet.

An additional order, received from a NATO member European country, calls for the supply of C-Music systems.

Elad Aharonson, General Manager of Elbit Systems ISTAR Division, said, We are proud to be awarded these new contracts. While the Asian customers decision to acquire more DIRCM systems for its Blackhawk helicopters attests to the customers satisfaction with the previous order, the new contract with the European NATO member country extends the number of platforms that will be equipped with our systems. We see a growing global demand for our DIRCM systems, which we believe address a strategic need for our customers.

Elbit Systems Music family of DIRCM systems are under contract for numerous customers worldwide including the Israeli national program for protection of its commercial fleet for platforms such as the B747, B737, B757, B767, B777 and A320; the Italian Air Force for the C130J, C27J and CSAR AW101; the KC-390 for Embraer and the Brazilian Air Force; the German Air Forces Airbus A400; Blackhawk helicopters for Asian customers, VIP helicopters and other aircraft.
