Description: The Miysis is a Directed Infrared Countermeasures (DIRCM) system developed by Leonardo to meet the requirements of the United Kingdom (UK) Ministry of Defense (MoD). The Miysis system works by using a high energy laser beam to blind an incoming missile's infrared seeker forcing to miss its target. This countermeasures system requires a sophisticated warning system to provide the alert of the incoming threat. The countermeasure system is especially well suited to defeat inexpensive Man Portable Air Defense Systems (MANPADS) used by terrorist organizations and military operators worldwide. The Miysis along with Elix-IR warning system are expected to be demonstrated in early 2018 onboard both civil and military aircraft ranging from helicopters to large airplanes.
