Northrop Grumman has been shortlisted as one of two potential strategic partners for the design, development and delivery of the Australian Defence Force’s (ADF) Joint Air Battle Management System under the AIR6500 Phase 1 project.

Through AIR6500 Phase 1, Australia is seeking a strategic partner to steward the architecture of a highly complex Joint Air Battle Management System (JABMS) while supporting ADF multi-domain operations in an increasingly complex future air and joint battlefield environment.

Northrop Grumman Australia’s proposed solution for the AIR6500 Phase 1 project will contribute towards the delivery of a fifth-generation JABMS capability for the defence of Australia to help protect the ADF and allied forces from a diverse range of air and missile threats.

“Our US team, in partnership with our Australian colleagues, looks forward to providing our advanced architecture that has been deployed successfully across a number of joint all domain command and control programs, including Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System (IBCS),” said Christine Harbison, vice president and general manager, combat systems and mission readiness, Northrop Grumman.
