HUNTSVILLE — Northrop Grumman’s Integrated Battle Command System is ready to be fielded to Army units, the company announced.
IBCS is the cornerstone of the Army’s air and missile defense modernization strategy. It replaces the multiple air and missile defense command and control systems with a single system.
“IBCS has the leading role in the Army’s air and missile defense modernization strategy because its ability to integrate multi-domain sensors to create fire quality fused data enables the warfighter to quickly decide on the best shooter to defend against incoming threats,” said Rebecca Torzone, vice president and general manager, Combat Systems and Mission Readiness with Northrop Grumman. “With its mature, proven and ready capabilities, IBCS transforms and extends the battlespace for the U.S. and its allies.”
This groundbreaking step toward putting multi-domain capabilities in the hands of the warfighter comes on the heels of the program’s recent approval for Full Rate Production as 256 Today reported in mid-April.
These milestones are the result of the completion of critical testing, and development of logistics, support and training. IBCS has integrated or demonstrated integration on sensors and shooters from all U.S. service branches and allies.
IBCS implements a modular, open and scalable architecture that integrates available assets in the battlespace onto a common, integrated fire control network, regardless of source, service or domain.
By enabling this high level of network integration, the warfighter is given unprecedented time to make accurate decisions, the company said.
