Additionally, MacB will support systems acquisition and sustainment efforts along the programme continuum from initial operational capability (IOC), to full operational capability (FOC), and through disposal / demilitarisation.

MacB Mission Systems Group senior vice-president and general manager Fred Norman said: “Support for the Air Force Global Strike mission is a pillar for our long-term Strategic Command customer.

“We were fortunate to support AFGSC mission operations at the beginning of the program in 2009, and this win extends our continuous presence at Barksdale AFB.

"It also reflects MacB’s strategic growth into the nuclear enterprise with our core command and control capabilities.”

AFGSC, a part of the US Strategic Command, helps combat-ready forces to conduct strategic nuclear deterrence and global strike operations in support of combatant commanders.

NC3 is a large and complex system of activities, processes, and procedures comprised of numerous terrestrial, airborne, and space-based components that are used to assure connectivity between the President of the US and nuclear forces.
