Northrop Grumman Seeks Partners for Australian Battle-management System Project

Northrop Grumman is seeking expressions of interest from Australian industry to join them in their efforts to support the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) with Project AIR6500, which involves building a 5th generation multi-domain joint battle management system (JBMS).

The Project is valued at over $1 billion. The JBMS will enable coordination of air battle management, joint weapons employment, electronic warfare battle management, and ground-based air defence in operational theatres, the company said in a statement.

“The ICN Gateway Portal will serve as the primary vehicle for potential suppliers to register expressions of interest and share information about their competencies and skills,” Northrop announced.
