Weather Mod flare,(skyClear):

In cases, when use of rockets for control over hail processes is impossible (absence of infrastructure for work with rockets, prohibition of rockets launching) second by efficiency method of influence can be applied, which is usage of anti-hail equipment from a board of the airplane. There are three types of such equipment:

1. pyrotechnic generators located on board of the airplane, which produce an aerosol during the flight near the hail-dangerous clouds.
2. cartridges, which could be shot off from the airplane and then fly through a cloud
3. jet cartridges, which could be shot off from the airplane with opportunity of hitting directly into a hail-dangerous cell

At present moment company produces first two types of means of influence and has begun development of jet cartridges. Last variant appears to be especially perspective, because it allows to bring aerosol into an area most favorable for influence and simultaneously to use jet means with the lowered amount of silver compounds, since an activity of ice-nucleation pyrotechnic composition increases during its burning under high pressure.


Infrared Decoy Flare is an Infrared (IR) decoy providing
aircraft survivability and protection against IR guided threats. It
is intended as an improvement over the performance of the MJU-7A/B decoy
when used either singly or in combination with other Infrared
Countermeasure (IRCM) on the F/A-18E/F aircraft. This decoy is being
derived (marinized) from the MJU-7A/B which incorporates features which
will allow it to be used safely in a Naval operating environment. The
decoy is sealed to prevent moisture and air contamination of the flare
grain, and uses a BBU-36/B sized impulse cartridge. The MJU-53/B IR
decoy flare consists of a rectangular case approximately 1x2 inches in
cross section and 8.1 inches in length; therefore, it will be common for
both Navy F/A-18E/F and Air Force aircraft
