Aircraft IRCM
A large-aircraft IR countermeasures system pod, attached to a KC-135 Stratotanker at Scott Air Force Base, Illinois. The pod is a laser-based countermeasures system designed to detect and employ countermeasures against infrared-guided surface-to-air missiles. Raydiance is working to develop a femtosecond pulse laser that would result in much more compact IRCMs, and where the pulses can be tuned to defeat more advanced threats.
