Northrop Grumman wins deal for Large Aircraft Infrared Countermeasure systems

Northrop Grumman has received a $3.6 billion indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) award for Large Aircraft Infrared Countermeasure (LAIRCM) systems and support from the US Air Force.

Under the IDIQ, the Air Force may issue task or delivery order awards up to the ceiling amount specified in the contract. Work is set to conclude in 2025. The initial task order is $2.4 million for logistics support services.

Northrop Grumman’s LAIRCM system protects aircrews by detecting, tracking and jamming incoming infrared threats without the need for user intervention.

Bob Gough, Vice President, Land and Avionics C4ISR division, Northrop Grumman, said: “This new IDIQ award extends Northrop Grumman’s multi-decade support of successful aircrew protection provided by our infrared countermeasure systems, and demonstrates our customer’s confidence in LAIRCM’s ability to address the rapidly changing threat environment.”
