Northrop Grumman holds a $31.4 million contract to develop infrared countermeasures for the U.S. Army to use in defending helicopters against missiles, the company said Thursday.

The company recently delivered the first of eight Common Infrared Countermeasures and a hardware system to the Army for reliability testing.

SELEX Galileo and Daylight Solutions worked with Northrop to develop the CIRCM systems.

“With the growing proliferation of infrared threats, it is more important than ever that our troops have effective protection from these missiles,” said Jeffrey Palombo, vice president and general manager of Northrop’s land and self-protection systems division.

The Northrop team is building the systems to work with missile warning systems onboard military rotary wing, tilt-rotor and small fixed-wing aircraft.
