Noun 1. seekers. The Tadircm is a low-profile, laser-based countermeasure system used to protect tactical and other fixed-wing aircraft "Airplane" and "Aeroplane" redirect here. For other uses, see Airplane (disambiguation).
A fixed-wing aircraft is a heavier-than-air craft where movement of the wings in relation to the aircraft is not used to generate lift. 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.
