Northrop Grumman has received a contract from the US Army for Common Infrared Countermeasure (CIRCM) systems and support services, the company announced on 1 August.

The award, which has a potential value of $482 million, expands CIRCM production and strengthens the logistics support infrastructure necessary to support the programme as it moves toward full rate production.

The company received an initial task order for $82.8 million.

CIRCM is a lightweight system that uses laser energy to defend aircraft against infrared threats. Its modular, open systems architecture allows it to be integrated with systems and sensors to address current and emerging threats.
