Northrop Grumman is committed to delivering capabilities and services that meet Poland’s defence needs and requirements. We are also committed to working cooperatively and collaboratively with the Polish government and industry to deliver advanced, capable solutions that reflect our mutual commitment to enabling the coalition force and to NATO and Polish national security.

Major Programs and Initiatives Include:

IBCS: Any sensor; best shooter.

The Polish government is modernizing its armed forces, and has selected the state-of-the-art Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) Battle Command System (IBCS) to serve as the centerpiece of its modernization strategy for air and missile defence capability. The foundation for the U.S. Army’s air and missile defence force, Northrop Grumman’s IBCS will deliver the most advanced and capable C4I system for IAMD in Poland. Our approach to integrating sensors, weapons and command and control (C2) tools is transformational. The truly open-system IBCS developed for the U.S. forces delivers the ultimate sensor and shooter agnostic integrated environment. Operating as the C2 nerve-centre for air and missile defence systems, IBCS also takes the common operating picture to new levels and provides unparalleled flexibility for different operations and future upgrades.


  • Interoperable: The state-of-the-art IBCS will ensure Poland interoperability with U.S., NATO and coalition forces.
  • Scalable: IBCS enables more flexible defence designs so that smaller forces can be deployed while increasing protection areas.
  • Open: IBCS’ scalable, open architecture allows efficient integration of multiple, disparate sensor/weapon types. Individual sensors and weapons can be acquired as components of a network on as-needed/as-available basis.
  • Affordable: IBCS allows cost-effective integration of current and future sensors and weapons to defend against an ever increasingly complex threat.
  • Capable: IBCS offers cutting edge technology and an affordable path to enable Polish air and missile warfighters to be the most capable in the world.
  • Secure: Northrop Grumman is a leading provider of cyber solutions to the U.S. Department of Defense, intelligence community, federal/civil agencies and allied nations around the world. As a recognized leader in cyber resilience solutions, we have been focused on cyber capabilities for IBCS since the beginning of development.

Other Capabilities

F-35 Lightning II: The F-35 Lightning II is a stealthy, supersonic, multirole fighter designed to meet requirements of the United States and allied defense forces worldwide for an affordable, next generation, multi-role fighter. Northrop Grumman is a principal member of the Lockheed Martin-led industry team that is developing and producing three F-35 variants. The F-35A is the conventional takeoff and landing (CTOL) variant, the F-35B is the short takeoff-vertical landing (STOVL) variant, and the F-35C is the carrier variant (CV). Northrop Grumman's critical role in the development, demonstration and production of F-35 include:

  • Production of the center fuselage and composite components such as wing skins, nacelles and access covers
  • Design and production of the AN/APG-81 Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) fire control radar
  • Design and production of the AN/AAQ-37 Distributed Aperture System (DAS)
  • Design and production of the AN/ASQ-242 Communications, Navigation and Identification (CNI) avionics suite
  • The development of mission systems and mission-planning software
  • The development of pilot and maintenance training system courseware

AQS-24B Minehunting System: Advanced Capabilities/Performance Meeting the U.S. and International Navy's Current and Future Minehunting Challenges. Northrop Grumman has three decades of in-fleet airborne mine countermeasure experience with 31 systems fielded. For more information, click here.

Longbow: The Longbow Fire Control Radar and its weapons counterpart, the radar-guided, "fire and forget" Longbow Hellfire missile, enable the potent Apache attack helicopter to detect, classify and prioritize ground targets day or night, in poor weather and obscured conditions; then attack those targets with pinpoint accuracy from ranges that safeguard the lives of the aircrew.

Short Range Air Defense (SHORAD): Northrop Grumman’s SHORAD capabilities protect U.S. and allied forces from a wide range of manned and unmanned air and missile threats. Our capabilities utilize sensors, weapons, and command control to acquire, track, verify, engage and defeat incoming threats and are built on an open systems architecture that enables integration of a variety of sensors and solutions to defeat current and future threats.

Delivering Combat Power For The Warfighter: We have a long standing relationship with the Polish Land Forces, providing them with the MK44 30x173mm Bushmaster Chain Gun integrated on to the KTO Rosomak infantry fighting vehicle produced by Poland’s Armaments Group. The Rosomak unfitting, makes Poland the largest user and most extensive installed base of our MK44 Bushmaster Chain Gun worldwide. This is key to providing both an overmatch capability as well as interoperability with allied nations. The MK44 is being integrated on to neighboring Lithuania’s new infantry combat vehicle and this past spring the U.S. Army up fitted its Germany-based 2nd Cavalry Regiment’s Stryker fleet with the XM813, a variant of the MK44 featuring a heavier barrel, dual recoil dampers and the ability to fire the company’s programmable air burst munition (MK310). Poland also is the largest user of Northrop Grumman’s aftermarket services. Each year, we provide maintenance and user training as well as spare parts to keep the Polish Land Forces Rosomak fleet combat ready. For more information on our Bushmaster Chain Guns, click here.
