Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System (IBCS)

Integrated Air and Missile Defense IBCS  

The Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System (IBCS) is a revolutionary command-and-control (C2) system developed to deliver a single, unambiguous view of the battlespace. This significantly enhanced aircraft and missile tracking improves the ability of combatant commanders and air defenders to make critical decisions within seconds. With its truly open systems architecture, IBCS enables integration of current and future sensors and weapon systems and interoperability with joint C2 and the ballistic missile defense system.


  • [IBCS] opens up the aperture in terms of how we're going to be able to fight in the future

    - Brig. Gen. McIntire

  • IBCS will take us from stove-piped, stand-alone weapon systems to the integrated air and missile defense we require

    - Francis Mahon

  • IBCS will redefine air and missile defense weapon systems

    - Francis Mahon

  • IBCS remains the Army�s number one air and missile developmental priority and serves as the foundation for Army [air and missile defense] modernization.

    - Barry Pike

  • When fielded, IBCS will enable a tailorable, flexible, task-organized Army AMD force, breaking the current stove-piped system construct.

    - Barry Pike

  • Unlike the outdated systems IBCS will replace � this technology will be wholly owned by the government, with the Army being the key system integrator.
  • IBCS has had successful flight tests in 2015 and 2016, which proved the system �could do what was previously thought to be undoable.
  • What we are working on today will be key for decades to come in our ability to combine offensive and defensive fires into one entity that is fast and agile.

    - Brig. Gen. McIntire

  • When fielded, IBCS gives that combatant commander that unprecedented capability to scale to the needs of the threat

    - Darryl Colvin

  • IBCS buys us the ability to bring any sensor, any shooter directly into the integrated fire control network

    - Darryl Colvin

  • IBCs improves that AMD commander's ability to fight and survive in very complex operating theaters

    - Darryl Colvin

  • We've been able to adapt IBCS to integrate new requirements easily

    - Dan Verwiel

  • The modular, open-systems architecture allows us the opportunity to introduce those new requirements relatively easily.
