Rob Smith: Lockheed-Led Team Seeks to Link Military Missile Defense Elements - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Money data centerAn industry team led by Lockheed Martin is working to establish a link between battle management systems used by the Missile Defense Agency and U.S. Army.

The Missile Defense National Team is developing the C2BMC (command, control, battle management and communications) system to unify disparate ballistic missile defense elements, Lockheed said Thursday.

“Potential air and ballistic missile threats may cross regions and outpace the capabilities of individual missile defense systems operated by one service,” said Rob Smith, vice president of C4ISR at Lockheed’s information systems and global solutions business.

Lockheed’s teammates for the program include companies such as Northrop Grumman, Boeing, Raytheon and General Dynamics.

C2BMC, first deployed in 2004, works to engage ballistic missile threats with sensor-activated weapons.
