Northrop Grumman
: 16 April, 2008  (New Product)
Northrop Grumman Corporation this week submitted its bid for the prime role in the U.S. Army's Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System (IBCS) competition.
Due to be awarded in August 2008, the contract is considered the first step towards an integrated air and missile defense capability for the Army, and a joint capability for the nation.

Under IBCS, the winning team will establish a network-centric system-of-systems solution for integrating sensors, shooters, and battle management, command, control, communications and intelligence systems for Army air and missile defense. The newly integrated system will allow warfighters to take advantage of expanded sensor and weapon system combinations via an integrated fire control network.

'Our team has listened closely to the customer's needs and has developed an open architecture approach that connects Army systems with joint systems, allowing the services to operate as one integrated force in the future,' said Larry Dodgen, vice president and deputy general manager of Missile Defense Division for Northrop Grumman's Mission Systems sector. 'We are leveraging our team's collective expertise in command and control, and air and missile defense to deliver a transformational system that will meet tomorrow's needs and give the warfighter the ultimate defensive advantage on the field.'

Northrop Grumman is leading a team that includes The Boeing Company, Lockheed Martin Corporation, Harris Corporation, Schafer Corporation, Torch Systems LLC, Numerica Corporation, Applied Data Trends, COLSA Corporation, Space and Missile Defense Technologies LLC, CohesionForce Inc., Millennium Engineering and Integration Company, RhinoCorps, Ltd. Co., and Tobyhanna Army Depot.

The program is being managed by the Integrated Air and Missile Defense Program Office, Program Executive Office for Missiles and Space in Huntsville, Ala.
