Northrop Grumman obtains modification for Polish IBCS contract
US Army Contracting Command has issued an $11.62 million FMS modification for Northrop Grumman to install its Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System (IBCS) in Poland.
Work will be performed in Huntsville, Alabama, with an estimated completion date of 31 December 2025, the DoD announced on 23 April.
Poland is the first international customer for IBCS, with a $713 million contract for four firing units under the initial phase of the Wisla national air and missile defence programme. According to Shephard Defence Insight, it could decide to buy four more units in the second phase of Wisła.
In February 2021, Northrop Grumman and its local partner Transbit completed integration and testing of the first non-US radio communications system to function with IBCS in Poland. The US company is also delivering net-enabled C2 for IBCS.
