BIDEC 2017: Lacroix present its capabilities to Bahrain
During BIDEC 2017, October 16-18 in Manama, Bahrain. LACROIX, a leader in air, land and sea countermeasures, will be pleased to welcome you to our stand B10 in the French Pavilion,
Lacroix introduces the following solutions: - The SYLENA MK2 decoy launcher to provide optimal corvettes and frigates protection to the Bahrein Navy - The Galix AO“ sste, for armored vehicle protetion 4x4, 6x6 ,8x8, APC, LMV, MBT… The Airborne Countermeasures, designed to protect combat jets, rotary wings or large transport platforms to defeat laser-guided missiles.
The growing need for ship self-protection in the age of sophisticated threats: For over 25 years, powerful calculation capabilities and the miniaturization of electronic components have driven unprecedented advances in missile and torpedo homing device technology, making them highly discriminating with respect to standard techniques employed by conventional countermeasures. The latest generation of missile homing devices can instantaneously analyze the target’s spectral, spatial and temporal data and reject any radar echoes or infrared radiation that are not emitted by a ship’s signature. Most missiles today reject standard decoys employing metal strips (chaff) or infrared compositions. In the same way, standard countermeasures are systematically rejected by advanced torpedoes. In order to counter the latest threats, recent technological developments have significantly enhanced countermeasures’ credibility and effectiveness.
