This system was selected by the Italian air force to protect C-27, C-130J and AW101 and combat-search-and-rescue helicopters and also installed operationally on a fleet of AW101 helicopters for VIP transport. C-Music was configured as a self-contained, self-protection product configured for large commercial aircraft, including the PAWS Infra-Red Missile warning System and Music Dircm, installed in an aerodynamic pod.
The Dircm associated with C-Music is also provided in the standalone J-Music, configured for heavy transport planes such as aerial tankers or VIP aircraft in a single or dual-turret configuration. J-Music has already been selected for Embraer’s KC-390 program in Brazil.
