Northrop Grumman recently secured a $60.6M contract to continue providing a range of support services for the U.S. Army's air and missile defense system.

The company said Monday it will go on to aid in logistics, engineering, integration, testing, assessment, program management and training activities under the Army's Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System or IBCS program. Work is scheduled to take place in Huntsville, Ala., through 2021.

Services under the contract that it received in October will help the Army prepare for fielding and administer a limited user test scheduled to commence in the second quarter of 2020.

The Army uses IBCS to integrate sensors with IAMD interceptors in a network with cybersecurity and protection against air and missile threats.

A test in August demonstrated IBCS' function to provide situational awareness and missile defense via radar-gathered data.
