Lacroix's full range of spectral / MTV chaff and flares enables Air / Land / Navy Force aircrews to perform low altitude operations. The effectiveness of these flares has been demonstrated on a wide range of large transport aircraft. (A400M, C 130, C 160, EMB 145 - EW, CASA C 295 - CN 235, Falcon VIP ...) and tested in some of the most demanding technical trials (EMBOW & MAMBOW).
They are currently in operational use in many forces, engaged in operational missions or conflicts throughout the world.
Our know-how combined with strict compliance to ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001 guarantee:
Efficiency demonstrated with combat proven protection of airborne platforms,
Design compatibility with any dispensing system,
Safe, reliable, and innovative Lacroix decoys.
Each of our cartridges undergoes extensive on-site testing in our testing facilities: high-speed rails, pyrotechnic tunnel etc. - All of them are STANAG 4687 & 7122 compliant.
Our range of transport A/C cartridges is available in 1x1-inch or 2x1 inch for MTV & spectral technology and chaff.
Lacroix has also designed flares specifically for the Airbus A400 M with MTV and spectral technologies.
- MTV flares: Designed to counter 1st generation MANPADS decoyed by high intensity IR output.
- Spectral flares : Designed to prevent the activation of IR missiles equipped with counter-countermeasures.
