Northrop Grumman and MBDA have successfully incorporated the Common Anti-air Modular Missile (CAMM) family into the Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) Battle Command System (IBCS) under a joint, company-funded effort.

Following approvals from the US Department of Defense and UK Ministry of Defence, Northrop Grumman and MBDA completed functional integration of the end-to-end firing chain for integrated fire control and fire direction configurations between CAMM and IBCS. The effort accomplished all research and development goals of integrating CAMM into the IBCS and reduces risk and costs for full integration.

The CAMM family of missiles feature a solid-state active radar seeker, two way data-link, low-signature rocket motor and a 360° soft-vertical launch system. The family of next generation of air defence missiles are designed to defeat saturation attacks by precision-guided munitions and manoeuvring high-speed missiles attacking simultaneously from multiple directions.

IBCS integrates disparate radars and weapons to construct a more effective IAMD enterprise. IBCS delivers a single integrated air picture, and has an open systems architecture that allows incorporation of current and future sensors and effectors, and interoperability with joint C2 and the ballistic missile defence system.

IBCS is managed by the US Army Program Executive Office for Missiles and Space, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama.
