The U.S. State Department has given its approval for Poland to acquire an Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) Battle Command System (IBCS) along with associated equipment, with an estimated cost of $4.0 billion.
The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) has formally notified Congress of this potential sale.
As part of its air defense enhancement efforts, Poland, a NATO ally, has requested the purchase of phase two of a two-phase program, which involves the PATRIOT Configuration-3+ command system equipped with modernized sensors and components.
The proposed sale includes 93 engagement operation centers for the system, 175 fire control network relays, and various related equipment, according to the Pentagon.
Northrop Grumman will serve as the primary contractor for the missile defense system.
