BAE Systems Awarded Integrated Battle Command Contract By DARPA

Burlington MA (SPX) Nov 28, 2005
BAE Systems has been selected by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) for Phase 1 of the Integrated Battle Command (IBC) Program.

The IBC Program will provide military commanders a comprehensive suite of software decision support tools. These tools will allow commanders and their staff to understand the Political, Military, Economic, Social, Information and Infrastructure (PMESII) effects of various potential courses of action that might be employed in a situation.

IBC will leverage existing BAE Systems technologies in modelling and simulation, automated planning and visualisation.

"The program will provide new tools to aid commanders in planning strategic effects-based campaigns," said Dr. Nils R. Sandell, Jr., BAE Systems vice president and general manager for Advanced Information Technologies (AIT).

"We are looking forward to working with DARPA, the Communications and Electronics Command (CECOM) and U.S. Joint Forces Command (JFCOM) to develop and demonstrate these new tools and transition them to our joint forces in the field."

BAE Systems in Burlington, Massachusetts, received one of two competing contracts ¿valued at $3.5 million each ¿ for Phase 1. Phase 2 will be competitively awarded to a single contractor at the conclusion of Phase 1 in June 2006. CECOM at Ft. Monmouth, New Jersey is the contracting agent.

The IBC tools will be installed and evaluated at the U.S. JFCOM in Suffolk, Virginia, during Phase 1.
