As defined by the Center for Countermeasures:
Countermeasure(s) (CM) Any device or technique intended to impair the effectiveness of a weapon or system, particularly precision-guided weapons and sensor systems. Countermeasures can be active or passive. They can be deployed preemptively or reactively.
Counter-countermeasure(s) (CCM) Any device or technique that is intended to impair the effectiveness of a countermeasure.

Joint Mobile IRCM Test System (JMITS) is a mobile, self-contained, ground-based, open-air missile simulators capable of replicating MANPADS threat signatures in both the IR and UV bands. This system corrects the shortcomings of existing open-air infrared countermeasures test systems.
Seeker/Radiometric Van is a mobile system consisting of a 53-foot trailer and a Kineto Tracking Mount (KTM). The system is capable of utilizing up to eight IR seekers at one time, depending on the seeker configurations, to test IRCM system performance. Coupled with this van is a radiometric suite of imagers and spectrometers collecting signature information.Center Test Capabilities
A CTEIP funded development
False Target Generator-CCM developed-capable of detracting some PGWs from the intended target
L8A3 White Phosphorus Grenades - provide IR coverage for a “valued target”
Smoke Generators “Coyotes”- provide CM coverage in visible and IR bands.
The Center for Countermeasures’ CM/CCM testing and analysis occurs:
To assist the system developer and the DT and OT agencies in CM testing and hardening
To provide customers information and recommendations from an independent source
