Description: The BAE Systems Boldstroke is a modular, lightweight, highly reliable and low-cost directable infrared countermeasures (DIRCM) suite designed to protect rotary-wing aircraft from infrared-guided missiles and other evolving threats. It uses a modular open-system architecture and non-proprietary standard interfaces that support interchangeability and technology insertion. The Boldstroke DIRCM allows for direct and fiber coupling between the laser and pointer/tracker, providing installation flexibility to meet the size, weight, and power requirements of both light and heavy rotary-wing platforms. The Boldstroke protection system was unveiled in October 2010.
The Boldstroke infrared countermeasure system is fully compatible with the US Army's Common Missile Warning System. It utilizes flight-proven hardware and algorithms ready for low-risk transition to operational testing. Its compact pointer/tracker is based on a flight-tested gimbal design and advances laser technology to provide spectral diversity and power margin to address emerging threats. The system reduces A-Kit and B-Kit weight to maximize aircraft useful payload and increases weapon system availability, providing significant life-cycle cost savings.
