Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has been selected to refresh the U.S. military’s battle command system for directing the flight of all airborne assets.
Lockheed said Monday the company will update the air tasking order management system requirements for the U.S. Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps.
The command system is meant to replace a portion of the theater battle management core system.
“Since developing TBMCS in 1995, we’ve ensured that the system provides the tools needed for coordinated air operations, ” said Rob Smith, vice president of C4ISR systems for Lockheed Martin.
“This effort provides the warfighter with additional system to system interoperability to support their continually evolving mission, ” added Smith.
U.S. military commanders will use the command system to deploy air assets, implement air tasking orders and direct joint air missions, Lockheed says.
