Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System (IBCS)
Connecting the Battlespace to Enable Multi-Domain Operations
The Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System is a software-defined, hardware-enabled system that integrates and optimizes every-sensor/best-effector operations using a net-centric Integrated Fire Control Network that senses, identifies, tracks and defeats air and missile threats.
Every Sensor, Best Effector
Developed in partnership with Northrop Grumman, the Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System (IBCS) is the centerpiece of the U.S. Army’s modernization strategy for air and missile defense capability. By networking any sensor with the best effector, IBCS will deliver the most advanced, battle survivable command and control (C2) system for U.S., joint and coalition forces, providing revolutionary multi-domain defense capabilities that will enhance lethality against current threats and enable growth to address future threats.
Northrop Grumman designs, develops, builds and sustains some of the world’s most advanced products and systems, including IBCS. Northrop Grumman has successfully developed, manufactured and delivered IBCS major equipment items that include engagement operations centers, integrated fire control network relays and plug-and-fight kits that have been operated by U.S. Army soldiers in highly successful, operationally realistic tests and employed with materiel release and fielding.
IBCS Selected for Poland’s WISLA Program
The Polish government selected IBCS to serve as the centerpiece of the country’s modernization strategy for their WISLA Medium Range air and missile defense program, becoming the first international partner to acquire this transformational capability.
