Northrop Grumman Completes First Full IBCS Set Delivery to Army

The U.S. Army has received the first production components of the Integrated Battle Command System from Northrop Grumman.

The recent delivery of the Engagement Operations Center and Integrated Fire Control Network followed the turnover of another IBCS equipment, called the Integrated Collaborative Environment, to the Army in December 2023, completing the first IBCS set that will allow the military branch to train soldiers on using the system, Northrop Grumman said.

The EOC, which hosts the battle management software, communications and computing power for mission planning, and the IFCN Relay, which enables the communication network for integrated sensors and weapons, were handed over to the Army under a $145 million full-rate production contract.

According to a GovConExec International report, the IBCS will support the Joint All-Domain Command and Control warfighting concept by integrating originally incompatible sensors and effectors under a single command and control system.

“IBCS is ready now to provide our warfighters more decision time in the battlespace to outpace tomorrow’s threats,” said Rebecca Torzone, vice president and general manager of combat systems and mission readiness at Northrop.
