Northrop Grumman Corp. formed a strategic alliance with SELEX Galileo to compete for the U.S. Army's Common Infrared Countermeasures (CIRCM) program. CIRCM is intended to provide the U.S. military with a laser-based IR countermeasures solution against current and future IR threat systems. For the CIRCM program, the Northrop Grumman-SELEX Galileo team has integrated the ECLIPSE micro pointer/tracker with a processing and laser countermeasures capability to produce a fourth-generation lightweight, highly reliable Directional Infrared Countermeasures system specifically designed for medium and light helicopter protection.
