Northrop Grumman has announced that its IBCS (Integrate Battle Command System) has been approved for frontline use by the U.S. Army. Officially called “operational capability,” ICBSs will now make their way to the U.S. Army to help the advancement of technology. “Through numerous successful developments, operational tests, and demonstrations, IBCS has proven its capability to connect and fuse multi-service sensor data to multi-service weapons, demonstrating the Army’s contribution to Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2) capabilities,” says Northrop Grumman.

ICBS is a computerized system that helps the U.S. Army manage it’s defenses against air and missile threats. It combines information from sensors like radars  and decide the best way to respond to potential threats. With it, the Army can make faster and better decisions to protect itself using a single system instead of multiple older ones. The IBCS is also made to work with new technologies fast, making it more adaptable and efficient for the future. This will be a vital piece of equipment for the U.S. Military in years to come.

ICBS is a centerpiece for the modernization of the U.S. Army. ICBS enables an efficient and affordable integration of current and future systems.  It senses, identifies, tracks and defeats evolving air and missile threats.
