12th February 2013 - 14:58 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Boeing has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Elbit systems that will see the companies work together in the area of aircraft defence solutions. The agreement will focus on offering Elbit Systems' Directed Infrared Counter Measure (DIRCM) systems for a range of Boeing military fixed-wing and vertical-lift aircraft.

The DIRCM family of systems are lightweight, compact systems designed to protect aircraft from common battlefield threats. Boeing's Network & Space Systems and Boeing Military Aircraft organisations are working together to integrate the systems onto new and existing aircraft, as well as to provide signature analysis and end-to-end services and support.

Roger Krone, Boeing network & space systems president, said: ‘Boeing is partnering with pioneering firms worldwide to bring advanced technology to our customers. Our relationship with Elbit is an example of how we are enhancing our portfolio with innovative capabilities for a variety of solutions.’

Joseph Ackerman, Elbit Systems president and CEO, added: ‘We are very proud to collaborate with Boeing in this unique solution, providing optimum protection for airborne platforms. Based on our long history of working with Boeing, we anticipate that this joint effort will provide the optimal solution for protecting our customers and creating synergistic value for both companies in this strategic and fast-growing market.’
