Lacroix’s countermeasure systems are already protecting the Colombian presidential fleet of UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters. The company is now working on proposal to modernize existing systems, and to extend this contract to the FAC whole fleet of 80+ S-70i/UH-60L helicopters.

Lacroix's full range of MTV / Spectral / Kinematic chaff & flares enables Air / Land / Navy Force aircrews to perform low altitude operations. The effectiveness of these flares has been demonstrated on a wide range of rotary wings (EC725-Caracal, Tigre, Puma, Super Puma, Cougar, CH47 Chinook, NH90, MI-8, MI-17, AH64 - Apache, A109, B412, Sea King, EH101) and tested in some of the most demanding technical trials (EMBOW, MAMBOW).  They are currently in operational use in many forces, engaged in operational missions or conflicts throughout the world.

With regard to the PES program requirements, the SYLENA MK2 system offers an array of flexible and modular solutions capable of being integrated in the ship’s combat system (CMS: Combat Management System).

The SYLENA decoy-launcher range is light and compact, thereby meeting the specific requirements for the modernization of existing vessels or equipping new ones.

LACROIX’s range of terminal effects for decoying missiles and torpedoes offers operators the highest level of interoperability and interchangeability with SEACLAD countermeasures, as well as numerous logistical advantages for a fleet comprised of a great variety of vessel types for all kinds of missions, while providing modular system compatibility with evolving technology for future acquisitions.
