International Breakthrough in the Protection of Commercial Aviation Aircraft: Elbit Systems to Supply the Israeli Ministry of Transportation With C-MUSIC for $76 Million
C-MUSIC is based on the MUSIC(R) system, a direct infra-red countermeasure technology for military aircraft and helicopters that disrupts missiles fired at aircraft and causes them to veer off course by transmitting a laser beam.
The systems' reliability, rapid-response and ability to deal with multiple threats is considered to be among the most advanced systems of its kind in the world today.
Elbit Systems' MUSIC(R) system completed a series of flight tests recently.
Leading aviation industries and air forces have expressed increasing interest in the system and its capabilities.
