NEWTOWN, Conn. -- The U.S. Integrated Broadcast Service (IBS) system is designed to integrate existing intelligence broadcast systems into a single architecture, in order to transmit critical data to field commanders as quickly as possible. IBS provides the means for national and theater intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance sensors to pass intelligence and information reports to tactical users, who then make decisions based on the near real-time dissemination of threat information. The result is track data that appears on a warfighter's display processor, either as images on a map or scrolling data that, when clicked, conveys a more detailed report of the event.

A major goal of IBS has been to integrate the four legacy intelligence broadcast systems used by the U.S. Air Force, Army, National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), and National Security Agency (NSA) into one interactive system. This task has eliminated duplication and now provides commanders in the field with one Common Messaging Format. At one time, the U.S. DoD was using as many as 12 messaging formats.

The Joint Tactical Terminal-Integrated Broadcast Service (JTT-IBS) is replacing the IBS. It provides secure two-way satellite communications for critical, near real-time multisource threat, survivor, and Blue Force Tracker data. It enables worldwide situational awareness capability by connecting tactical users and intelligence nodes. JTT-IBS is National Security Agency (NSA) Type-1 certified.

IBS is fully up and running. Development of the Next-Generation Joint Tactical Terminal began in FY19 and will run through FY22. Legacy IBS terminals are expected to reach the end of their sustainable life-cycle in FY2025.
