Northrop Grumman Australia has submitted its response to the AIR6500 Phase 1 Joint Air Battle Management System (JABMS), Competitive Evaluation Process Stage 2 (CEP2).
The company’s solution is designed to connect disparate Defence systems and platforms across all domains into a cohesive, integrated operational environment. The JABMS will provide a distinct advantage to the warfighter by synchronising air and missile defence operations, improving situational awareness and enhancing the speed of decision making.
“Northrop Grumman Australia’s JABMS solution will provide an advantage to the Australian Defence Force (ADF) through delivering a contemporary, sovereign solution that is able to defeat today’s threats and evolve to better meet the battlespace challenges of the future,” said Christine Zeitz, general manager, Northrop Grumman Asia Pacific. “I congratulate all members of our team, including our Australian industry partners, Nova Systems, Silentium, Daronmont and AOS Group, for their significant contribution to our Australian-led, world-class JABMS solution.”
Northrop Grumman Australia’s JABMS solution will draw on the company’s all-domain command and control expertise and experience developing and demonstrating the U. S. Army’s Integrated Battle Command System (IBCS). The JABMS will use its open, modular and scalable architecture to integrate all available assets in the battlespace, regardless of source, service or domain.
Northrop Grumman Australia is one of two shortlisted companies selected to participate in the AIR6500 Competitive Evaluation Process – the other is Lockheed Martin Australia.
