As the world's leading developer and producer of tactical missiles, Raytheon has leveraged its AIM-9X missile seeker
and domain experience to design, develop and demonstrate a fourth-generation Directed Infrared Countermeasure
(DIRCM) system for tactical military aircraft and other light platforms. The benefits of this capability include (1)
reliable protection against threat missiles, including multiple and short shots, (2) the use of a small, reliable and proven
AIM-9X-based laser-pointer, (3) advanced laser options for state-of-the-art threats, (4) high-rate and high-quality
production capacity, and (5) low cost.
