The Missile Defense Agency has offered a two-year contract modification award worth $424 million to the Command, Control, Battle Management, and Communications (C2BMC) program for continuing the missile defense system’s integration work.
The work in this stage of the program will relate to enhancement of the security, reinforcing the capabilities for situational or planner awareness, handling more and newer sensors and weapon systems, and offering additional integrated functionality.
This program forms the main component of the ballistic missile defense system. It integrates the sensors and weapon systems in this system. The missile defense system functions as a force multiplier that offers capabilities for integrating and global synchronization of the missile defense systems, as well as their operations. It offers a layered, optimized protection against various threats during all flight phases. The National Team B led by Lockheed Martin was awarded the C2BMC program originally in 2002, with most of the work conducted in Colorado Springs, Colorado, Huntsville, Ala., and Arlington, Va.
John Osborn, director of Missile Defense Systems at the Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Services – Defense, informed that the ongoing developing, integrating, testing, and fielding activities of the C2BMC project has facilitated the provision of real-world operations for supporting the objectives and priorities of the U.S.
