Northrop Grumman Corp. has been selected to provide IR missile warning systems (IRMWS) and processors to the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) in support of medium and heavy lift helicopter fleets. Under the terms of the $80 million contract, Northrop Grumman will deliver more than 450 IRMWS and 90 processors to NAVAIR beginning in May 2011 and concluding in the second quarter of 2013. This hardware, in conjunction with Northrop Grumman's Guardian laser transmitter assemblies and control indicator units delivered under the same U.S. Air Force indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract, will complete the initial Department of Navy Large Aircraft IR Countermeasures (DoN LAIRCM) installation requirements on 156 aircraft to provide IR threat protection for U.S. Marine Corps CH-53E, CH-46E, and CH-53D platforms.
