$2.5 MILLION CIRCM REJUVENATES
LOW-COST MARKET
Then, the low-cost DIRCM flood gates
opened again. In February 2016, the
Italian Air Force declared its HH-101A
special forces/multi-use helicopter operational, with its Elettronica IEWS(V)12
defensive aids system (DAS), including a
dual-turret version of Elettronica/Elbit
Systems' ELT572(V)2 DIRCM.
Some companies also sought to
minimize the costs of installing DIRCM
systems onto legacy aircraft. In April
2016, Denmark's Terma A/S (Airborne
Systems) offered its Universal DIRCM
Pod (UDP), following earlier Terma
podded ECM systems including the
Apache Modular Aircraft Survivability
Equipment (AMASE) pod and the Chinook Aircraft Survivability Equipment
(CHASE) pod. Terma claimed the continuing threat of terrorism around the
globe and the ever-changing technology of surface-to-air missiles have created a greater demand for DIRCM systems,
as well as the need for the flexibility to
protect all aircraft. The UDP pod structure houses a complete DIRCM suite,

including laser turret, electronics, and
missile warning system (MWS) sensors,
in a small, lightweight, and rigid structure - just under 40 lbs. per structure.
The UDP has reportedly been tested by
Terma on several platforms/programs,
utilizing existing hard-points. Adina
Cherry, Vice-President, Terma A/S stated: "Giving customers the option and
flexibility to transfer IR countermeasure and MWS equipment across aircraft not only enables protection when
it is needed, but also yields cost and
time savings to the operator."
At the Farnborough Air Show in July
2016, Elettronica and Thales announced
they will "explore joint initiatives and
pursue growth business opportunities in
the electronic warfare segment." Their
first cooperative product, launched at
Farnborough in 2016, is Cybele, a modular DIRCM system for military helicopters and fixed-wing transports.
By late 2016, Leonardo (formerly
Selex ES) claimed it had delivered
"launch order... hardware" for its new
Miysys small laser DIRCM to a NATO nation. Miysis utilizes Leonardo's Type

160 multi-band IRCM laser and an open
architecture design, allowing integration with a variety of missile warners
on platforms from light aircraft and
helicopters to large platforms. Miysis
is available as an internally-mounted
system or as a pod, with the baseline
configuration reportedly weighing only
110 lb. and consisting of a five-sensor
MWS, two compact pointer-tracker turrets with the Type 160 laser, and a suite
control unit.
And in mid-2017, Thales introduced
its ELIX-IR next-generation singlecolor IR multi-function passive threat
warning system (TWS), including missile warning and hostile fire indication (HFI). A platform fit comprising
five Sofradir IR sensors and a controller
unit reportedly weighs just 48 lb. Thales
announced that ELIX-IR will be available by late 2018, and it initially will be
offered as part of both Cybele and Miysys, as well as with IRCM pods made by
Terma and Saab.
But, why are all these and other new
low-cost DIRCMs and missile warners popping up now? Teal Group believes it may
