In separate efforts, Jet Aviation and Kollsman are the latest companies to explore possible anti-surface-to-air-missile (SAM) systems. Jet Aviation, a subsidiary of a Swiss-based company with U.S. headquarters in West Palm Beach, Fla., is reportedly in talks with possible system vendors Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman. Meanwhile, Kollsman of Merrimack, N.H., is working with Elop Electro-Optic Industries to develop an anti-SAM system called Music–multi-spectral infrared countermeasure. Neither Jet Aviation nor Kollsman was ready to provide an estimated timetable or pricing. Currently, BAE Systems makes the only STC’d anti-SAM product, which is currently offered for Gulfstreams.
