Thales Elix-IR and Leonardo Miysis defeated IR-guided missile during test in Sweden
The Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) hosted a SALT (Surface-to-Air Launch Trial) and during the demonstration, a Leonardo-Thales system successfully defeated a Infra-Red (IR) missile.
The threat was first detected and classified by a Thales Elix-IR multi-function Threat Warning System (TWS) and processed by a Leonardo’s Defensive Aids Suite (DAS) Controller. A Leonardo Miysis Directed Infra-Red Counter-Measure (DIRCM) system was then directed to defeat the threat with a jamming laser pointed onto the missile’s seeker. The entire package was housed in a Terma Universal DIRCM pod.
