[Avionics Today 08-04-2015] Elbit Systems has won two contracts for its Music family of Directed Infrared Countermeasures (DIRCM) airborne multi-spectral self-protection systems. The first contract is a follow-on agreement from an unspecified Asian country to supply its mini Music systems for the customer's Blackhawk helicopter fleet. This is the second order awarded by this customer this year. An additional order, received from an unnamed NATO member European country, calls for the supply of C-Music systems. Both contracts will be performed during 2015 and are in amounts that are not material to Elbit Systems.
Elbit Systems' MUSIC family of DIRCM systems are under contract for numerous customers including the Israeli national program for protection of the commercial fleet for platforms such as the Boeing 747 through 777 models and A320; the Italian Air Force for the C130J, C27J, and CSAR AW101; the KC-390 for Embraer and the Brazilian Air Force; the German Air Force's Airbus A400; Blackhawk helicopters for Asian customers, Very Important Person (VIP) helicopters, and other aircraft.
