Flare Test Track

COTEC has a unique capability to test electronic countermeasures on our bespoke Flare Test Track.

A large volume of compressed air is fired down a narrow track accelerating bespoke manufactured “shuttles” to a maximum of 240 m/s (approx. 860 km/h). Two contacts half-way down the track then complete the firing circuit launching the countermeasure through its design function. Our customers are then able to perform a spectral analysis of their test items for paramenters such as radiation wavelength and colour purity.

Some of our notable customers are DSTL, Chemring Countermeasures and Leonardo.
