"We plan to forge an all-star team that combines battle-proven air defense expertise with advanced technology and a revolutionary approach," said Pete Franklin, vice president for Integrated Air and Missile Defense, Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems. "We will offer the Army an affordable solution by 2011."

The goal of the IBCS is to provide an open architecture that enables the warfighter to take advantage of an "any sensor and any shooter" integrated fire control network. The Army's vision is to move toward a network-centric system-of-systems capability for integrating sensors, shooters, and battle management command, control, communications and intelligence systems for Army air and missile defense.

"Team IBCS will partner with the Army, academia, large and small business, and best-of-breed capability providers to ensure we provide our warfighters with superior integrated battlefield command and control capability," Franklin added.

"We are all about creating a best value, open architecture IBCS solution set that is modular and mission adaptable to ensure our warfighters have decisive, reliable integrated fire control well into the future."

Integrated Defense Systems is Raytheon's leader in Joint Battlespace Integration providing affordable, integrated solutions to a broad international and domestic customer base, including the U.S. Missile Defense Agency, the U.S. Armed Forces and the Department of Homeland Security.
