  • 20-Jan-2010 09:28 EST

The U.S. Army selected Northrop Grumman Corp. to develop the Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System (IBCS) under a $577 million, five-year contract for system design and development. IBCS will integrate current and future air and missile defense systems to allow warfighters to use any sensor and any weapon to achieve mission objectives in a true open-architecture environment. The Northrop Grumman IBCS solution is based on a nonproprietary, open-architecture approach that establishes a network-centric system-of-systems solution for integrating sensors; weapons; and battle-management command, control, communications, and intelligence systems. IBCS is expected in the field by 2014.
