Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) will support the communications of the U.S. Army’s new Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System (IBCS) with their highband networking radios .
As part of Northrop Grumman’s IBCS team, Harris will supply its radios to carry critical battle-command information, and will provide system and network engineering services over the five-year life of the program.
IBCS will integrate the fire-control networks of current and future air and missile defense systems. This command system will enable warfighters to use any combination of sensors and weapons to achieve mission objectives in a true open-architecture environment.
“Designed from the ground up to support the networked battlefield, our Highband Networking Radio will provide the solid, yet mobile, communications backbone required to ensure critical information on the IBCS reaches the right location at the right time, ” said Wes Covell, president, Harris Defense Programs. “We are proud to support the U.S. Army in the development of this transformational system.”
