NEWTOWN, Conn. -- Used worldwide on several classes of diesel-electric submarines, sales of the CSU-90 integrated submarine-mounted sonar system are likely to parallel those of its main platforms -- particularly the Type 209, Type 212, and Type 214 submarines. Each of these submarine classes can be expected to be sold at a rate of two to four boats per year over the next several years.

CSU-90 sonar production projections are based upon the commissioning dates of known CSU-90 platforms, plus the addition of those platforms for which the CSU-90 is the dominant contender.

In the future, perhaps a decade or so from now, the CSU-90 will probably be replaced by more advanced developments in the family, much as the CSU-90 displaced the CSU-83. Such developments could include new types of conformal arrays and provisions for the operation and control of unmanned vehicles. It is probable that the design of the platform submarines is undergoing a major change, and the CSU-series sonar will have to reflect that if it is to remain viable.

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. -- The Northrop Grumman Corp. Large Aircraft Infrared Countermeasures (LAIRCM) pod for the KC-135 Stratotanker aircraft has achieved Milestone C.

This critical milestone, awarded by the Department of Defense Milestone Decision Authority, marks the end of the development and testing phase and enables the beginning of production and deployment.

The Generation 3 podded LAIRCM system, known previously as Guardian, is an infrared countermeasure system that detects, tracks and jams incoming missiles. It incorporates advanced missile warning sensors, a compact laser pointer/tracker and a processor in a single pod that can be readily transferred between aircraft to meet rapidly changing mission requirements. This mature system leverages Northrop Grumman’s decades-long countermeasures experience and requires no aircrew intervention. KC-135 aircrews can focus on their critical refueling, aeromedical evacuation and cargo missions while gaining the full survivability benefit the LAIRCM system provides.

To achieve Milestone C, Northrop Grumman worked closely with the KC-135 Program Office, Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve Command to thoroughly test LAIRCM for KC-135 in the laboratory and the field.

Northrop Grumman's infrared countermeasure systems have been installed on more than 1,800 large and small fixed wing, rotary wing and tilt-rotor platforms of more than 80 types.
