Northrop Grumman in Poland

In today's conflicts, a new battlefield is arising — one where traditional systems aren't the only ones targeted. At Northrop Grumman, we create unrivaled, full-spectrum cyber solutions to actively combat these threats. Our offensive and defensive capabilities act as powerful deterrents, while built-in resiliency hardens your systems so that, when attacked, you can trust they remain yours. That's why we're a leader in end-to-end cyber for the modern world.

MISSILE DEFENSE SYSTEMS

Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) Battle Command System (IBCS)

Any sensor; best shooter.

The Polish government 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. 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 US 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.

IBCS advances the common operating picture to new levels and provides unparalleled flexibility for varied operations and future upgrades:

Interoperable

The state-of-the-art IBCS will ensure Poland interoperability with US, 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 an as-needed/as-available basis.

Affordable

IBCS allows cost-effective integration of current and future sensors and weapons to defend against an 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 US 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.

DELIVERING COMBAT POWER FOR THE WARFIGHTER

DELIVERING COMBAT POWER FOR THE WARFIGHTER

Northrop Grumman has a long-standing relationship with the Polish Land Forces, providing them with the MK44 30x173 mm Bushmaster Chain Gun integrated on to the KTO Rosomak infantry fighting vehicle produced by Poland's Armaments Group. The Rosomak integration 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 and interoperability with allied nations. The MK44 is being integrated on to neighboring Lithuania's new infantry combat vehicle and the US 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. Find more information on our Bushmaster Chain Guns here.
