Northrop Grumman has submitted a proposal to the US Air Force to modernize the nation’s intercontinental ballistic missile system (ICBM) with the Ground Based Strategic Deterrent (GBSD) program.

GBSD will replace the existing ICBM missile system, including the weapon systems command and control; flight, launch and ground systems; and cyber elements, the company said in a statement Monday.

“The ICBM system has been an effective deterrent since its inception,” said Carol Erikson, GBSD vice president and capture manager, Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems. “Northrop Grumman has submitted a proposal leveraging our comprehensive ICBM weapons system understanding to deliver a low-risk, adaptable solution within cost and schedule.”
