BAE Systems Highlights Boldstroke™ Common Infrared Countermeasures System at the Army Aviation Association of America’s Annual Professional Forum and Exhibition

NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BAE Systems will display the Boldstroke™ directable infrared countermeasure system at the Army Aviation Association of America’s Annual Professional Forum and Exhibition April 17-20 at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel & Convention Center in Nashville, Tenn.

“Highly relevant experience matters in the development and production of directable laser systems, and that is certainly the case for the common infrared countermeasure program”

In the near future, BAE Systems will submit its proposal for the U.S. Army Common Infrared Countermeasure (CIRCM) program with its Boldstroke™ directable infrared countermeasures suite, designed to protect aircraft from infrared-guided missiles and other evolving threats.

The Boldstroke™ system represents $83 million in company investment in technology and infrastructure to develop the next generation in aircraft survivability equipment and support capability. Boldstroke is a lightweight and highly reliable directable infrared countermeasure suite which uses modular open-system architecture and non-proprietary interfaces that support interchangeability and technology insertion. Boldstroke synthesizes the best attributes of prior generation laser jamming systems to meet the size, weight, and power requirements of both light and heavy rotary-wing platforms.

Boldstroke is fully compatible with BAE Systems’ field-proven Common Missile Warning System and consists of 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 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.

“Highly relevant experience matters in the development and production of directable laser systems, and that is certainly the case for the common infrared countermeasure program,” said Jim Crouch, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Survivability and Protection Solutions business area in Nashua, N.H. “For 30 years we have pioneered threat exploitation, jam code development, hardware-in-the-loop simulations, flight tests, and live fire tests. We’ve delivered more than 10,000 infrared countermeasure systems and have experience on every single Army platform, and most importantly, our infrared countermeasure systems are saving lives in combat today. BAE Systems has the technology, experience, and commitment to ensure Boldstroke exceeds the Army’s requirements.”
