Northrop Grumman signed a digital enterprise agreement Wednesday with Defence Digital, a UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) organisation, to provide Interoperable C4I Services (ICS) and command and control (C2) technical consultancy.
ICS combines an open architecture and a set of track management and situational awareness capabilities to facilitate the creation, visualisation and distribution of the common operating picture. This picture provides military commanders the information they need to plan, execute and manage military operations.
ICS is developed and supported in the UK, and it has continuously evolved to provide the core C2 systems for UK MoD and NATO HQs/ships for over 25 years. It is also fielded by many other nations to power their national C2 systems.
