Northrop Grumman has been selected by the US Department of the Air Force as a member of the Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS) Digital Infrastructure (DI) Consortium. Northrop Grumman is one of five industry partners included in the consortium to design, develop and deploy advanced data-driven capabilities for the Air Force and Space Force.
The company will apply technical expertise in systems design, data management, secure processing and connectivity to define how the Air Force uses data in coordination with the Joint Force to make faster decisions in the multi-domain battlespace.
The Advanced Battle Management System Digital Infrastructure (ABMS DI) consortium will strengthen joint warfighting in support of the DoD’s JADC2 concept. The industry team will support the government in developing technical and business plans to deploy digital infrastructure for fighter jets in an accelerated timeframe.
“As the Department of the Air Force continues to advance ABMS, Northrop Grumman’s expertise in advanced networking, sensors, software, platform integration, autonomy, and manned-unmanned integration across all domains will continue to support the DoD’s emerging needs at JADC2,” said Tim Frey, vice president of research and advanced design at Northrop Grumman. “Our work with the Department of Defense, combined with our own research and development efforts, gives us access to critical pathfinding capabilities that will connect the Joint Force.”
The ABMS Digital Infrastructure Consortium has four areas:
+ Secure processing: Secure hardware and software of a common processing and storage platform through multi-layered security.
+ Connectivity: Provide stable, secure and well-managed support for battle management data transfer.
+ Data Management: Providing tools for warfighters and battle management software developers to more easily access key data across security boundaries and in degraded environments.
+ Open architecture: Use open standards and best commercial practices that ensure technical upgradeability, flexibility and resistance to loss and interruptions.
