Northrop Grumman demonstrates joint integrated fires during exercise

The Integrated Battle Command System provides the warfighter with a single air picture connecting multiple service assets

An Integrated Battle Command System like this was deployed during the Valiant Shield exercise.

Northrop Grumman Corp. received sensor information from multiple sources during the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command’s Valiant Shield exercise, enabling an extended battlespace and quicker response.

Northrop Grumman’s systems, including the U.S. Army’s Integrated Battle Command System (IBCS), were deployed as part of the operation. The system demonstrated cross-service Joint-All Domain Command and Control interoperability. It provided the warfighter with a single integrated air picture connecting multi-service assets.

“Valiant Shield further demonstrates the power of our architecture to network any sensor and effector, across every domain, and to extend the battlespace by leveraging their combined capabilities,” said Christine Harbison, vice president and general manager, combat systems and mission readiness, Northrop Grumman.

The IBCS is an open, modular and scalable architecture that integrates all available assets, regardless of source, into the battlespace. It also enables efficient and affordable integration of current and future systems.

Northrop Grumman has locations in Huntsville that work on a number of military and space-based programs, including the IBCS.
