The Center for Countermeasures owns and operates the Joint Mobile Infrared Countermeasure Testing System (JMITS), a self-contained, ground-based, mobile unit designed to test aircraft countermeasures to MANPADS threats. The system consists of a tracking mount outfitted with missile simulator capable of transmitting threat representative UV and IR missile signatures. In addition the JMITS has IR and UV radiometers, a static threat seeker suite, and an atmospheric measurement suite for characterizing atmospheric conditions. The Center has two JMITS units. This system, developed in 2008, corrected many T&E shortfalls of existing open-air infrared countermeasure test systems.
