HUNTSVILLE, ALABAMA (BNS):  The US Army has awarded Northrop Grumman Corporation a $713 million contract for the production of Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) Battle Command System (IBCS) for the first phase of Poland’s WISLA air and missile defense programme.

Dan Verwiel, vice president and general manager, missile defense and protective systems, Northrop Grumman said, “Through the acquisition of IBCS, Poland will be in line with the US Army’s future direction. Poland will have the flexibility to consider any radar and any interceptor, optimize sensor and effector integration and keep pace with an evolving threat.”

Under this foreign military sales contract for WISLA, Northrop Grumman will manufacture IBCS engagement operations centers and integrated fire control network relays and deliver IBCS net-enabled command and control for four firing units.

The IBCS engagement operations centers will be integrated with IBCS battle management software that maximizes the combat potential of sensors and weapon systems.

IBCS delivers a single integrated air picture with unprecedented accuracy and broadens surveillance and protection areas. It allows incorporation of current and future sensors and weapon systems and interoperability with joint C2 and the ballistic missile defense system, a Northrop Grumman statement said.
