Abstract:

Infrared flare countermeasures are used for protection of aircraft from IR-seeking surface-to-air missile by providing an intense IR signal, overpowering any other signal and misleading the threat sensor. Recently, advanced threat sensors have begun to monitor multiple optical bands and ignore conventional decoys. More advanced decoy systems have some spectral control over thermal emission, but are still limited. Hence, a critical need exists to develop a next-generation decoy platform that produces sufficient thermal emission in the wavelength regions of choice and is tunable to match the specific spectral thermal emission of particular aircraft. TIAX proposes to demonstrate the power and flexibility of nanostructured particles to meet the demand for these advanced decoy systems.
