Lockheed-Led Team to Update C2, Battle Mgmt & Comms Platform Under $320M MDA Contract

Jeff Brody

An industry team led by Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has secured a potential $320 million contract to equip the Missile Defense Agency’s Command, Control, Battle Management and Communications platform with a new radar and tracking sensors.

The company said Tuesday that it will help install the Long-Range Discrimination Radar on the ballistic missile defense system as part of efforts to secure BMDS against cyber threats and counter missiles.

BDMS works by linking satellites, weapon systems and autonomous sensors via a multidomain platform. C2BMC is a key component of the system and built to provide commanders with an integrated view of current or emerging threats globally.

“C2BMC continues to showcase the benefits of a layered, cross domain defense that can help protect the U.S. and allies from increasing security concerns around the world,” said JD Hammond, vice president of C4ISR systems at Lockheed.

Teammembers include Boeing (NYSE: BA), General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) and Raytheon (NYSE: RTN).
