Lockheed, Raytheon-Thales JV Partner to Provide C2 Capability for NATO’s BMD System

Lockheed Martin and a RaytheonThales joint venture have teamed up to provide a command-and-control capability for NATO’s ballistic missile defense system.

Lockheed said Tuesday it will work with ThalesRaytheonSystems to build a low-risk C2 capability for NATO’s air BMD program designed to defend and protect European populations and territories from potential missile attacks.

Rob Smith, vice president of C4ISR for Lockheed’s rotary and mission systems business, said the company will leverage its experience in C2, systems integration and weapons system development to provide a C2 capability for NATO in partnership with TRS.

TRS CEO Eric Marceau said teaming agreement seeks to codify the partnership that Lockheed formed in 2008 to deliver a theater missile defense capability to the alliance and to further expand collaboration to provide NATO a “full spectrum capability” in support of its territorial BMD program.
