Abstract
The proposed program will develop and demonstrate an effective infra-red (IR) countermeasure in the desired IR spectrum range while minimizing detectable signatures in the visible light spectrum. The prototype flare shall be developed to Technology Readiness (TRL) Level 6 and demonstrated in a relevant environment". The prototype should be as close to the final planned production/commercial configuration as possible and shall be ready to be installed onboard operational aircraft immediately following the end of the Phase II Base Period of Performance while simultaneously being ready for rigorous wind stream testing which will simulate the launching of the flare off of an aircraft.
