JNS.org – A new civilian aircraft system that protects against shoulder-launched missiles — created by the Israeli defense firm Elbit Systems — successfully passed a demonstration in Germany for NATO last month, according to a company report issued Monday.

A NATO team conducted the test of the Directed Infrared Countermeasure (DIRCM) systems, which is integrated with the advanced Passive Airborne Warning System (PAWS) IR based missile warning system, and the results proved its “capability to detect, acquire, track and jam the trial test equipment on the ground, under extreme conditions,” the report said.

The DIRCM system can jam man-portable air defense systems or infra-red, ground to air heat-seeking man-portable missiles that would potentially be used to shoot down jets. The test was demonstrated on an Airbus C295 aircraft.

    NATO is an evil EVIL even bigger EVIL, anti-Semite force, used to help do a genocide of the Serbs, for the Bosnian opportunist Muslims.

    The Leftis NGO type mind does not know how to not be Islamist, Islam always used woman and grandmother liars, while the world trains people to not trust the Jews because you, not us are evil Jews are more honest than anyone. NATO is with NAzi powerful Turkey helping is persecute dozens of minorities.

    NATO is evil, no more to say. It is not good for anyone other than western europe, and Islamists who lie better than the primitive Islamists.

    Here is who NATO committed a genocide for http://www.jpost.com/Magazine/Features/Strange-bedfellows

    Now that the effectiveness of this Israeli system in protecting civilian aircraft has been proven, I’d like Israel to now EMBARGO sale to any country that has backed the FASCIST labelling of Jewish produce from Judea/Samaria and/or refused to help Israel when she needed it. Stuff ’em: Call it REVERSE BDS if you like.

    I sincerely hope that Israel will NOT supply these defence systems to any country that voted or the Nazi labelling of Judean/Samarean products. Reverse BDS if you like. Let the scumbags understand fascist discrimination, boycotts and scapegoating cutscboth ways.
