Directed Infrared Countermeasures: Technology, Modeling, Testing

Register / Course Info

The threat posed by infrared-guided missiles is assuming increasing importance in the defense posture of the United States and other countries. Countermeasures to the threat capability are required. In response, at least four programs are underway to develop pointable, i.e., directed, infrared jamming systems. The increased sophistication of the infrared countermeasure (IRCM) system means that the engineers and managers on these programs require training in the various technologies comprising the systems.
