All-Domain. Any Sensor. Best Effector.

The Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System (IBCS) connects sensors and effectors never designed to work together into one command and control system so warfighters can see and act on data across the entire battlefield more swiftly.

Scalable and Resilient Design

Developed in partnership with Northrop Grumman, IBCS is the centerpiece of the U.S. Army’s modernization strategy for air and missile defense capability. The system’s resilient, open, modular, scalable architecture is foundational to deploying a truly integrated network of all available assets in the battlespace, regardless of source, service or domain. IBCS enables the efficient and affordable integration of current and future systems, including assets deployed over IP-enabled networks, counter-UAS systems, 4th- and 5th-generation aircraft, space-based sensors and more. It senses, identifies, tracks and defeats evolving air and missile threats, enabling revolutionary “all-domain, any sensor, best effector” operations.

Joint All-Domain Command and Control

Northrop Grumman is pioneering joint all-domain command and control with IBCS. Its modular, open systems architecture and ability to integrate, transport and access data provides one of JADC2’s foundational goals – the ability to connect and fuse multi-Service sensor data to multi-Service weapons, enabling decisions at relevant speed and achieve operational advantage over adversaries.

The Power of the Architecture

IBCS’s capacity to enable joint, all-domain integration and command and control capabilities is inherent of its architecture. The proof of this architecture continues to be showcased in developmental and operational tests of the system.

During a recent live-fire test, IBCS integrated a U.S. Marine Corps G/ATOR radar, two U.S. Air Force F-35 fighter aircraft, and the U.S. Navy’s Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) on the IBCS Integrated Fire Control Network (IFCN).
