Northrop Grumman announced on 3 January that it has received a $3.6 billion IDIQ contract from the US Air Force for Large Aircraft Infrared Countermeasure (LAIRCM) systems production and support services.  

Under the contract, the air force may issue task or delivery orders up to the specified ceiling value. The initial task order is $2.4 million for logistics support services.

The LAIRCM system automatically detects missile launches, determines if it is a threat, and activates a high-intensity laser-based countermeasure system to track and defeat the missile.

Work under the contract is scheduled to be completed in 2025.
