GERMANY. Cobham Mission Systems, supplier in military aircraft countermeasure components, announced it has won subcontracts to provide chaff and flare dispenser equipment for the German Air Force’s Quadriga Tranche 4 Eurofighter Typhoon fleet.

According to the company, chaff and flares are fundamental components of an effective, integrated self-defense suite, designed to help pilots complete their missions and return safely to base.

The Cobham Mission Systems’ Chaff and Flare Defensive Aid Systems include flare dispensers for off-board infrared-seeking missile countermeasures and chaff dispensers that deploy particles to neutralize threats from radar-guided missiles.

Cobham Mission Systems claims that it is the design authority for the Eurofighter Typhoon's defensive chaff and flare systems.
