Title
(EN) PLASMA FLARE IR AND UV EMITTING DEVICES
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'EMISSION DE RAYONS ULTRAVIOLETS ET INFRAROUGES DE FUSEE ECLAIRANTE AU PLASMA
Abstract
(EN) The invention relates to a plasma torch generator employed in a device or system that can be used to protect aircraft or vehicles from IR and UV seeking or tracking mechanisms. In one embodiment, the invention comprises a deployable broad spectrum, IR and UV emitting device containing the plasma torch, which can function as a countermeasure flare. The plasma torch can be used with a powered flare or housing that can be launched.
(FR) L'invention concerne un générateur de torche à plasma utilisé dans un dispositif ou un système pouvant être utilisé pour protéger un aéronef ou des véhicules de systèmes de recherche ou de suivi de rayons ultraviolets et infrarouges. Dans un mode de réalisation, ladite invention comporte un dispositif d'émission de rayons ultraviolets et infrarouges à spectre large déployable qui renferme la torche à plasma pouvant fonctionner comme une fusée éclairante de contre-mesures. Ladite torche à plasma peut être employée avec un logement ou une fusée éclairante à propulsion qui peut être lancée.
