“Protecting vulnerable, rotor-wing aircraft during this era of irregular warfare is paramount, ” said Carl Smith, vice president of infrared countermeasures for Northrop Grumman’s Land and Self Protection Systems Division. “Our system allows more versatility on the battlefield while helping to protect our men and women in uniform.”
