BAE Wins $68M Army Missile Defense Hardware Contract

Bae systems logo_ExecutiveBizBAE Systems has won a $68 million contract to provide the U.S. Army hardware for advanced threat infrared countermeasures systems that work to protect aircraft and troops against missile attacks.

The company also finished initial deliveries of common infrared countermeasure systems for testing at its Worrell/Weeks
Aircrew Protection Center, BAE said Monday.

Last year, the Army awarded BAE a $38 million development and demonstration contract for the CIRCM system, aiming to use the technology on helicopters.

ATIRCM systems use BAE’s AN/AAR-57 common missile warning technology, which is designed to locate an incoming missile.
