Northrop Grumman and European missile manufacturer MBDA have completed the integration of an air defense missile technology with a command-and-control system designed to help military users obtain a single view of the battlespace.

The two companies incorporated the Common Anti-air Modular Missile series into the Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System through a joint project approved by the U.S. Department of Defense and its U.K. counterpart, Northrop said Monday.

The project aimed to demonstrate a firing chain approach for integrated fire control and direction configurations between the CAMM and IBCS platforms.

IBCS employs a net-centric approach instead of the older stove-piped method to address modern, complex threats. The U.S. Army's Program Executive Office for Missiles and Space manages the system.

CAMM, which became the first non-U.S. missile system to be incorporated into the Northrop-built battle management system. works to engage targets via a two way data-link and an active radar seeker, with thrust generated from a low-signature rocket motor.

Airbus, BAE Systems and Leonardo own shares in MBDA.
