A CH-53E Super Stallion with the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit takes off from the deck of the USS
Mesa Verde (LPD 19). Part of the LAIRCM system is mounted above the starboard fuel tank. (USMC)

now nearing production (possibly), combined with US withdrawals from Iraq
and Afghanistan, our forecast is for
LAIRCM funding to continue to decrease
over the next decade.
What was supposed to be the US's
other billion-dollar DIRCM program -

BAE Systems' AN/ALQ-212(V) Advanced
Threat Infrared Countermeasures (ATIRCM) system - was long planned as the
US Army's universal next-generation
DIRCM, intended to supplant BAE Systems' heat-lamp ALQ-144(V) on nearly
all Army helicopters. Lockheed Sanders

won the ATIRCM/CMWS (Common Missile
Warning System) development contract
back in 1991, and an EMD contract in
September 1995. In November 2003, BAE
Systems was finally awarded LRIP. Unfortunately, the Army postponed production to wait for development of an
all-laser ATIRCM.
In July 2008, following several years
of helicopter losses in Iraq and Afghanistan, the US Army finally ordered ATIRCM QRC as a Quick Reaction Capability for
CH-47 Chinook helicopters, but initially
at a rather slow rate. The Army's first
ATIRCM-equipped Chinook was fielded
in October 2008, and by early 2010 the
Army had one company of 13 upgraded
helicopters in service, with the rest of
the Chinooks in Iraq and Afghanistan
to be upgraded in 2010. The Army has
reported the ATIRCM system on a Chinook helicopter defeated a multi-missile
ambush soon after the QRC was fielded
in 2009.
In 2010, aside from this limited QRC
production, ATIRCM was finally cancelled
by the Army after two decades of development, with the establishment of three

Introducing the World's First GNSS Transcoderâ„¢
Jackson Labs Technologies, Inc. just created a new product category:
The GNSS Transcoderâ„¢
Based on our next-generation full-constellation real-time GPS Simulator technology, the RSR GNSS Transcoderâ„¢ is
the world's first fully self-contained (no PC required) GNSS Transcoder/converter that can take a baseband
PNT/PVT signal from any GNSS receiver or positioning source and convert this to a GPS L1 C/A RF output signal
within milliseconds. This allows glue-less retrofitting of your legacy GPS receiver
products with the following capabilities:
- Galileo/Glonass/BeiDou/QZSS/SBAS
- SAASM and M-Code retrofit
- Built-in Inertial Navigation System
- 5ns timing transfer capability
- Chip Scale Atomic Holdover Clock (CSAC) option
- Operation as a Pseudolite Transmitter (IS-GPS-250A)
- Only 1.6 x 2.3 x 0.5 inches small, <1.1W power
Please contact us to discuss how to upgrade your legacy GPS systems to the latest GNSS
while protecting your investment.
