Lockheed Martin Delivers Integrated Air and Space Command Capability
Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] has delivered a prototype integrated air and space command and control (C2) capability to the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Strategic Command taking the first step toward automated access and availability of space information in air operations centers around the globe. Delivered to the C2 Transformation Center, Langley Air Force Base, the prototype capability integrates Global Positioning System (GPS) navigation accuracy and satellite overflight information directly into the air battle planning process.
The capability was delivered through a $2.8 million task order awarded jointly on Lockheed Martin’s Integrated Space Command and Control and Theater Battle Management Core Systems contracts. The project is a 15-year effort to modernize and integrate 40 systems for space controls, missile defense, and air surveillance for strategic command and the North American Aerospace Defense Command. The battle management system plans and manages the joint air battle and is the integrating platform within the operation centers.
