HUNTSVILLE — Northrop Grumman delivered an Integrated Battle Command System Engagement Operations Center to the U.S. government under a contract for Poland’s WISLA program.
WISLA is Poland’s medium-range air and missile defenses. The delivery marks the first foreign military sale of IBCS and it is the first of six to be delivered.
“As Poland acquires IBCS to modernize their air defenses, they are also taking major steps toward real Joint All-Domain Command and Control and mission readiness in the future battlespace,” said Christine Harbison, vice president and general manager, Combat Systems and Mission Readiness at Northrop Grumman. “Multiple live exercises and flight tests have demonstrated the JADC2 capabilities inherent in IBCS’ architecture.”
Poland is also working with the U.S. government on deliveries of IBCS equipment racks and software. They will be installed in operations centers in partnership with Polish industry, supporting the country’s short-range air defense modernization.
IBCS is designed to integrate all assets in the battlespace. Its architecture enables the efficient and affordable integration of current and future systems.
Through tests and demonstrations, IBCS has validated the ability to connect and fuse sensor data to weapons demonstrating JADC2 capabilities.
