MEDUSA Script
August 2, 2007 edit

The MEDUSA program is developing technologies for our nation’s aircraft that will provide proactive self defense against electro-optical and infrared missile and air defense threats.

Currently, aircraft must fly high to avoid the evolving EO/IR threat.

When approaching an enemy air defense zone, pilots can either enter the zone at great risk or fly high to avoid the threat.

Mission effectiveness is hindered when targets are missed, ordinance is wasted, and missions must be repeated.

MEDUSA, however, acts as a force multiplier permitting lower operating altitudes with increased survivability.

For example, shoulder fired missiles, a threat to low flying aircraft can be jammed after launch, as with current Directed Infrared Countermeasure systems..

MEDUSA equipped aircraft will locate ground threat systems and, depending on the type and location, either geolocate it

and pass off the high quality coordinate fix to another platform employing GPS guided weapons, for a hard kill...

Or MEDUSA can engage the threat for a sensor kill before launch.

The shoulder mounted ground to air missile launcher requires a target acquisition phase that can be detected and countered before launch by a MEDUSA equipped aircraft.

The MEDUSA program will provide aircraft the protection they need to fulfill mission objectives.
