Northrop Grumman has received a $713 million contract for the production of Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) Battle Command Systems (IBCS) for the first phase of Poland’s WISLA air and missile defence programme, the company announced on 14 March.

The contract has been awarded by the US Army under the US government’s foreign military sales programme. Poland signed a letter of offer and acceptance with the US government to purchase IBCS in March 2018.

Under this contract, Northrop Grumman will manufacture IBCS engagement operations centres and integrated fire control network relays and deliver IBCS net-enabled C2 for four firing units. The IBCS engagement operations centres will be integrated with IBCS battle management software that maximises the combat potential of sensors and weapon systems.

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