Lockheed Martin-Led Team Conducts Study on Battle Management Systems The team, which is led by Lockheed Martin, consists of Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Boeing, Raytheon, General Dynamics and other companies. This team develops C2BMC, the system that integrates separate elements (Aegis, THAAD, SBIRS etc.) of the ballistic missile defense system into a global network. Through C2BMC, commanders can link any sensor, any shooter, at any phase of missile flight in any region, against any type of ballistic threat.“Potential air and ballistic missile threats may cross regions and outpace the capabilities of individual missile defense systems operated by one service,” said Dr. Rob Smith, vice president of C4ISR for Lockheed Martin Information Systems and Global Solutions. “Linking C2BMC with the Army’s system will be a step toward a more powerful integrated air and ballistic missile defense capability.”C2BMC manages external sensor support tasks to support weapon engagements of ballistic missile threats. Integrating C2BMC with the Army’s system would provide the United States with an advanced capability enabling more complete air and ballistic missile situational awareness. The team is helping to identify potential interface changes that would pave the way to connect C2BMC with the Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System.[mappress]Press Release, June 27, 2014; Image: Lockheed Martin Share this article View post tag: conducts View post tag: Lockheed Martincenter_img Back to overview,Home naval-today Lockheed Martin-Led Team Conducts Study on Battle Management Systems View post tag: team View post tag: Navy Authorities View post tag: americas View post tag: Management View post tag: Naval View post tag: Battlelast_img
