LockheedLogoLockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has won a $12 million task order to upgrade a command and control system the U.S. Air Force uses to manage and execute joint air operations.

The order falls under the $249 million Command and Control Applications and Information Services Development contract and contains two base years with three option years, Lockheed said Tuesday.

Under this order, the company will update air tasking order features within the Theater Battle Management Core System, which directs flying operations for airborne assets such as manned and unmanned aerial vehicles and cruise missiles.

Jim Quinn, vice president of C4ISR systems for Lockheed’s information systems and global solutions business, said the company has integrated network-centric services into the TBMCS since its deployment.

Quinn added the company is updating the system to give users access to operations and intelligence data and tools for planning and collaboration.

Lockheed will also replace the Execution Management Re-Planner, Master Air Attack Planning Toolkit and Theater Air Planner applications within the TBMCS.
