Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) will provide equipment and support for the U.S. Air Force‘s Large Aircraft Infrared Counter Measures program under a potential seven-year, $3.60B contract.
The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract will include program management, logistics, engineering and sustainment work, the Department of Defense said Monday.
DoD noted the company will perform work in Rolling Meadows, Ill., and is projected to complete the services by December 2025.

The sole-source contract involves multiple foreign military sales provisions.
