Northrop Grumman wins $11.6M contract to support Army battle command system

Northrop Grumman has won an $11.6 million contract to continue to support the Army’s Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System (IBCS).

ICBS is an open-architecture command and control system developed to help the mission of the warfighter.

The system provides a fully integrated environment where soldiers trained in surveillance, identification, weapon management and engagements can plan and execute engagements of hostile targets while operating under joint oversight, Northrop said in a release.

The ICBS system replaces seven legacy command and control systems with net-centric command and control to reduce the risk of failure and increase flexibility for deploying smaller force packages, the company said. The system also allows for integration of future sensors and weapon systems.

Work will be performed in Huntsville, Ala., and is expected to be completed by Sept. 30, 2016, the Defense Department said in a release.
