Rob Smith: Lockheed to Help Marine Corps Update Air Mission C2 System

lockheed martinLockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has won an $18 million contract to help the U.S. Marine Corps modernize an infrastructure for planning and coordinating the military’s air combat operations.

The company said Thursday it will update and maintain almost 200 integrated software applications that run on the branch’s Virtualized Theater Battle Management Core System.

USMC uses the platform to collaborate with other military services on air campaign planning as well as to monitor airborne fighting vehicles, according to Lockheed.

“For nearly two decades, we have managed TBMCS, ” said Rob Smith, C4ISR vice president at Lockheed’s information systems and global solutions business.

“We’ll leverage our years of technical experience to ensure that the system remains aligned to the Marines’ overall mission, ” Smith added.

Lockheed will perform the system updates with the goal of helping USMC access real-time mission data and execute airspace control orders faster.
