Northrop delivers first command centre for IAMD

3rd May 2019 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Northrop Grumman has delivered the first production-representative engagement operations centre (EOC) for the US Army’s Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) Battle Command System (IBCS), the company announced on 1 May.

The delivered IBCS EOC has completed all functional configuration audits for major configuration items and system verification review, and is representative of the production configuration for hardware and software that will undergo qualification testing before initial operational test and evaluation (IOTA&E).

Northrop Grumman will deliver 11 EOCs and 18 integrated fire control network (IFCN) relays for the IBCS programme by the end of 2019. The EOCs and IFCN will be used for IOT&E, which informs future production decisions

The IBCS integrates radars and weapons to construct an effective IAMD enterprise. IBCS delivers a single integrated air picture with better accuracy as well as broader surveillance and protection areas. Its open system architecture allows incorporation of current and future sensors and effectors and enables interoperability with joint C2 and the ballistic missile defence system.
