A Lockheed Martin-led industry team has modernized a global network of systems that serves as the foundation of U.S. ballistic missile defense.
Lockheed said Tuesday it worked with Boeing, General Dynamics, Northrop Grumman and Raytheon to update the Command, Control, Battle Management and Communications system, which is installed at various locations worldwide.
The C2BMC network is designed to link space, sea and ground-based sensors and associated systems to help protect U.S. forces and allies from ballistic missile threats.
The industry team built, tested and deployed track processing, sensor and battle management algorithms to boost C2BMC’s capacity to process data from missile defense systems and mitigate large and complex threats.
The modernized C2BMC is based on an open architecture that works to support the integration of new technologies; optimize system reliability; address cyber threats; lessen overall hardware footprint and cut system lifecycle costs.
