Northrop Grumman Corp. and SELEX Galileo signed a memorandum of understanding to jointly pursue the international directional IR countermeasures (DIRCM) market. The MOU further strengthens the existing DIRCM strategic alliance and enables the two companies to aggressively target the "rest-of-the-world" DIRCM marketplace. For almost 20 years, Northrop Grumman and SELEX Galileo have been the preferred supplier of DIRCM systems to the U.S., U.K., and close allies. With more than 750 DIRCM systems delivered and supported, this capability and associated experience will be brought to the international community. The international DIRCM system will encompass an open framework that permits the integration of various sensors, pointer/trackers, and lasers.
