Korean precision optical lens supplier, 3L-Systems, has supplied its Sapphire Dome technology for the Directional Infrared Counter Measure (DIRCM).

The infrared Sapphire Dome from 3L-Systems plays a crucial role in enhancing the performance of the DIRCM by expanding the field of view for missile guidance systems.

DIRCM is a device designed to counter the threat posed by Man-Portable Air-Defence Systems (MANPADS). When a missile threat is detected on an aircraft, DIRCM plays a crucial role in significantly improving the survivability of allied aircraft by emitting high-power infrared lasers (deceptive light source) to disrupt the missiles.

Considered essential survival equipment for aircraft, DIRCM has traditionally incorporated foreign equipment. However, through successful domestication, utilizing purely domestic technology from local collaborators, including 3L-Systems, it has not only achieved import substitution but also secured growth momentum for the defense industry.

The CEO of 3L-Systems, said; “Adhering to the principles of high quality, fast delivery and service, competitive price, we will realize customer satisfaction through quality assurance and technological innovation. We aim to strengthen our competitiveness globally by expanding into overseas markets and establishing collaborative partners in countries such as Japan, China, and Singapore. Our goal is for 3L-Systems’ optical products to be utilized worldwide, and we will enhance our competitiveness with technological talents for that day.”
