Dyess receives first operational IBS-upgraded B-1

U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Steven Myers, B-1B Lancer pilot, completes a flight in the first newly upgraded operational B1-B Lancer Jan. 21, 2014, at Dyess Air Force Base, Texas. The B-1B Lancer was recently upgraded with an Integrated Battle Station. The IBS program is the largest B-1B Lancer modifications in history. The three-part modification begins with the installation of the Integrated Battle Station and upgrades to cockpit displays, improved diagnostics and a fully integrated data link. With the integration of these upgrades, the B-1 will provide combatant commanders a highly effective tool to sustain air power through the fruition of a next-generation bomber. These upgrades ensure the B-1B Lancer remains a capable and ready air power asset when called on through its scheduled 2040 service life. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt.
