Northrop Grumman lands $1.4B Army contract
Work to be completed by 2026
The U.S. Army has awarded a five-year-contract valued at about $1.4 billion to Falls Church-based Fortune 500 defense contractor Northrop Grumman Corp. for low-rate initial production and full-rate production of the Integrated Battle Command System (IBCS).
Developed in partnership with Northrop Grumman, IBCS is the centerpiece of the U.S. Army’s modernization strategy for air and missile defense capability. Under the contract, Northrop Grumman will produce and field IBCS and provide product engineering and logistics support for the U.S. and select allied forces through foreign military sales.
Work locations and funding will be determined with each order and the work is expected to be completed by Dec. 22, 2026, according to the Department of Defense.
“IBCS is a centerpiece of the U.S. Army’s modernization strategy for air and missile defense to address the changing battlefield,” said Mary Petryszyn, corporate vice president and president of Northrop Grumman Defense Systems, in a statement. “Working closely with the Army, we look forward to leveraging the IBCS architecture to create an all-domain command and control capability.”
