Northrop Grumman has successfully demonstrated its new air and missile defense battle command systems for the Army, the company said.

The Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) Battle Command System (IBCS) is designed to create a common battle planning system for all Army air defense systems, replacing seven disparate planning tools.

“The Army IAMD demonstration included two tactical integrated fire control network relays and three dismounted relays that let IBCS interface with remote weapons and sensors,” Northrop said in a news release. “The demonstration also used three tactical air defense engagement operations centers housing the IBCS computers, radios and necessary environmental control and power components.”

“The successful demonstration is important progress and we’re pleased our open architecture, any sensor-any shooter IBCS operated as planned and performed flawlessly,” said Linnie Haynesworth, vice president of the federal and defense technologies division for Northrop Grumman Information Systems.
