Helicopters and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) need all the protection they can get due to their subzero operational background. Even when on land they still have an intense thermal signature.
With Intermat the benefits are numerous; apart from a balanced thermal signature, you also gain time since just a few extra seconds is all you need to react and/or take off. Flares can now be more effective due to the greater DT between the helicopter and the countermeasure.
- Reduction of Infrared Cross Section
- More effective flares due to the greater Dt
- Reduced efficiency of heat seeking detectors / missiles
