Lockheed Martin is developing a software planner that integrates air operations and missile defense systems, giving the Air Force the ability to "see" and better understand dynamic global situations.
The U.S. Air Force Life Cycle Management Center awarded Lockheed Martin a contract worth approximately $8 million to provide an air and missile defense planner that will be integrated into the U.S. Air Force Air Operations Center.
By integrating the missile defense data sources on to a common visualization platform, operators can easily generate and publish planning tactical operations documents to support creation of an area air defense plan. Lockheed Martin leveraged years of expertise gained developing air operation and missile defense systems such as the Command, Control, Battle Management & Communications (C2BMC) system, which integrates multiple standalone ballistic missile defensive weapons systems; the Theater Battle Management Core System, which plans and executes air order taskings for Air Operations Centers, and the Integrated Space Command & Control (ISC2) system which unites data from approximately 40 U.S. Air Force air, missile and space command and control systems.
The customers for this integrated air and missile defense planner are the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center located at Hanscom Air Force Base in Massachusetts and the Air Combat Command located at Langley Air Force Base in Virginia.
