BAE Tadircm tests positive. (Digest).
The BAE Systems Tactical Aircraft Directable Infrared Countermeasure System (Tadircm) successfully completed tests for the US Navy that included hostile missile detection and jamming of both air-to-air and surface-to-air missile seekers. The Tadircm is a low-profile, laser-based countermeasure system used to protect tactical and other fixed-wing aircraft from surface- and air-to-air infrared guided missiles. The system detects and tracks incoming missiles, then jams them with its Agile Eye jammer (photo). BAE Systems' recent tests, which saw the Tadircm successfully place laser energy on the missile seekers, were precursors to actual live fire tests which should have begun by the time these lines are read.
