Lockheed, Navy Aim for Aegis to Intercept Targets Beyond Line of Sight; Jim Sheridan Comments

Lockheed Martin BlueLockheed Martin and the U.S. Navy have test-fired a missile with the goal of intercepting a target by using remote data acquired by the Aegis Combat System.

Aegis used its cooperative engagement capability system to interpret the data and dispatch the Standard Missile-6 from the USS Chancellorsville, Lockheed said Thursday.

The Naval Integrated Fire Control-Counter Air test was the first such evaluation conducted at sea

Jim Sheridan, director of Navy Aegis programs for Lockheed, said the company and Navy aim for the Aegis Combat System to detect, analyze and intercept threats beyond line of sight.

Lockheed said it has been collaborating with the Navy to maintain military readiness with updates to the Aegis Combat System fleet using open architecture and commercial off-the-shelf technologies.
