Elbit Systems to supply the Israeli Ministry of Transportation with C-MUSIC

Elbit Systems
: 25 June, 2009  (Application Story)
Elbit Systems Ltd. will supply the Israeli Ministry of Transportation with the C-MUSIC system (commercial multi-spectral infrared countermeasure) under a contract in the amount of approximately $76 million. The system, to be supplied by Elbit Systems' wholly owned subsidiary, Elbit Systems Electro-optics El-Op Ltd., is to be installed aboard a variety of commercial aircraft owned by Israeli commercial airlines.
C-MUSIC is based on the MUSIC® 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® system completed a series of flight tests recently.

Joseph Ackerman, president and chief executive officer of Elbit Systems, said: 'We take great pride in the selection of C-MUSIC by the Israeli Ministry of Transportation and see it as a mission to assist in protecting commercial aircraft worldwide. This selection represents a major accomplishment for Elbit Systems and attests to the quality, innovative technology and advanced capabilities that we offer to our customers. This is a significant breakthrough in this field, and we believe that many customers worldwide will decide to install these systems aboard their commercial aircraft fleets'.

Leading aviation industries and air forces have expressed increasing interest in the system and its capabilities.
