Northrop Grumman has won a $US35.3 million US army contract with options for engineering and manufacturing development and low-rate initial production of the Common Infrared Countermeasure (CIRCM) program.

Work will be performed at Northrop Grumman's Land & Self Protection Systems Division facility in Rolling Meadows, the company announced Monday.

"The U.S. Army's selection of Northrop Grumman and our industry partners, Daylight Solutions of San Diego, California and Selex ES,Edinburgh, Scotland, for the CIRCM program is a critical next step toward protecting rotary-wing and medium fixed-wing aircraft against emerging infrared missile threats of today and tomorrow by augmenting existing self-protection systems with a directed laser jamming capability.” Jeff Palombo, sector vice president and general manager of Northrop Grumman's Land & Self Protection Systems, said.

We have outlined a path to superior aircraft protection through highly reliable performance and operation, a commitment to modular open systems architecture, and the ability to seamlessly integrate new technology, Palombo added.
