Northrop Grumman Completes Delivery of

Monday, July 16, 2007
Northrop Grumman Corp. has successfully completed the initial software and hardware delivery of the Integrated Combat Management System (ICMS) to prime contractor General Dynamics for integration into the Navy's Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) combat system.

ICMS integrates the sensors and weapons onboard the platform, including the electro-optical/infrared sensor, volume search radar, onboard missile system, 57-millimeter gun, electronic warfare suite and communication system.

The integration work is being done by General Dynamics' Advanced Information Systems business unit at its Design Integration Facility in Pittsfield, Mass. Once integration is complete, the LCS core mission system containing the ICMS will be installed in the Independence (LCS-2) and put into sea trials in 2008.

The ICMS is the U.S. variant of the proven family of Thales TACTICOS, OACE Level 4-compliant, combat management systems designed for lower acquisition and operational costs. The TACTICOS combat management system is currently installed onboard more than 100 naval ships from 14 different nations. The LCS vessels are the first Navy ships to separate capability from hull form. They are designed to be robust, affordable, and mission-focused warships with the size, speed, endurance and connectivity to deploy as a member of carrier strike groups, expeditionary strike groups or surface strike groups. The Independence is the second LCS to be built.
