6th October 2016 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Northrop Grumman has made the delivery of the first Common Infrared Countermeasures (CIRCM) missile defence systems to the US Army, the company announced on 4 October.

CIRCM was developed under an engineering manufacturing and development contract that the company received in 2015. The next generation system is designed to increase rotary wing and medium fixed wing aircraft protection against man-portable air-defence systems and other heat-seeking munitions.

CIRCM has undergone software qualification testing to demonstrate key performance features, and acceptance testing to validate its compliance with army requirements.
