The Department of the Air Force has named Raytheon Technologies, Northrop Grumman and Science Applications International Corp. to an industry consortium tasked with developing the digital infrastructure for the Advanced Battle Management System.
The companies announced in separate statements their selection to the five-member consortium to develop and deploy secure processing, data management, connectivity and open architecture capabilities for the command and control infrastructure.
“We are prepared and ready to support our nation’s warfighters and provide them with a secure architecture that accelerates decision making and amplifies mission success,” said Michael LaRouche, president of the national security and space sector at SAIC and a two-time Wash100 awardee.
Tim Frei, sector vice president for research and advanced design at Northrop, said the company will deliver its expertise in advanced networking, sensors, platform integration, manned-unmanned teaming and autonomy to support the Department of Defense’s Joint All-Domain Command and Control initiative.
Raytheon aims to support the Air Force’s readiness to counter threats by enabling military commanders to “make synchronized and more informed decisions faster than ever before in multiple domains,” according to Paul Meyer, president of Department 22 at Raytheon’s intelligence and space unit.
