The Northrop Grumman-Selex Galileo alliance is building on its success with the AN/AAQ-24(V) Nemesis Directional Infra-Red Counter-Measures (DIRCM) system to address UK and U.S. helicopter requirements with a new “smaller, light-weight (and more) cost-effective” application than is currently available. Within the teaming, Northrop Grumman is developing a new-generation, multi-role warner, while Selex is offering its Economic Compact Lightweight Pointer-tracker System (ECLIPSE) architecture. The architecture will be applicable to a range of rotary winged applications including the AH-1Z, AH-64D, CH-47, Lynx and MV-22, in addition to types such as the OH-6. It is also directed at the UK’s Common Defensive Aids System (CDAS) requirement.
