Why is the use of flares still relevant for fighter jets
I don’t understand why flares are still useful in dog fighting. Couldn’t the engineers program the missile lock system to avoid tracking things with rapidly intensifying heat, such as flares? It seems like this would be an easy thing to program, at least relatively easy for the engineers who build fighter jets.

Could you find a burning candle on the surface of the sun?
In the beginning there was the word, the word was with God, and God was the word.

The word was the truth, the truth was the light, the light was the life inside of all men.

The darkness knew not the truth and rebuked the light, seeking to extinguish the life of all men.

Various combat missions include flares, one would be to light up the area for infantry troop on the ground and many 3rd world countries still use heat seeking surface to air missiles and the flares disrupt the targeting system.

It just seems like AI could handle that calculation now that they are integrating AI into fighter jets.
