The J-Multi Spectral Infrared Countermeasure (J-MUSIC) directed infrared countermeasure (DIRCM) counter-MANPADS solution from Elbit Systems has been selected by an unnamed African customer for installation onboard a VIP Gulfstream G650 aircraft.
The one-year contract, valued at more than USD20 million, also includes the Elbit Infrared Passive Airborne Warning System.
Designed for use on medium- to large-sized aircraft such as transports, special mission platforms and business jets, J-MUSIC uses many subsystems of the earlier pod-mounted C-MUSIC. The MUSIC family also includes mini-MUSIC (a single-line replaceable unit designed for use on board small- to medium-sized helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft).
