USA: Northrop Grumman Secures USD 96 Million C2BMC Contract

Northrop Grumman Secures USD 96 Million C2BMC Contract

Corporation has been awarded a $96 million follow-on contract as one of five major defense contractors on the Missile Defense National Team to continue development, operations and sustainment work.

The Missile Defense National Team, led by Lockheed Martin, is responsible for the Command, Control, Battle Management and Communications (C2BMC) program for the Missile Defense Agency. A crucial component of the U.S. missile defense strategy, the C2BMC program connects and integrates all elements of the nation’s ballistic missile defense system.

Since 2002, Northrop Grumman has been an integral part of the team that pulls together the industry’s best minds in an environment that leaves company partisanship behind,” said Kelley Zelickson, vice president of air and missile defense systems for Northrop Grumman Information Systems. “It’s a successful approach for achieving innovation and affordability in optimizing the most complex system of systems for the protection of our country.”   

Under the 38-month contract as a teammate of Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman will support key integrated product teams and provide engineering expertise to further develop, integrate and test C2BMC, operate and sustain existing globally fielded C2BMC assets, and provide test and exercise support for those systems.

Northrop Grumman is a leading global security company providing innovative systems, products and solutions in aerospace, electronics, information systems, and technical services to government and commercial customers worldwide.

Naval Mission Systems Technology

Integrating Naval Assets to Ensure Enhanced Maritime Operations and Support.

Navies are constantly looking at how the collection and dissemination of data from marine helicopters, UAVs, radars and shore based sensors through C2 systems can be improved to produce an accurate, clear, and all-encompassing picture of the maritime theatre for allied forces.

The complexity associated with effectively coordinating the variety of operations of these systems means that interoperability between all systems, divisions, and nations is of paramount importance. Therefore, SMi’s Naval Mission Systems Technology Conference will explore the strategies and technologies required to develop next generation capability in this vital area of national defence.

The expert speaker panel includes: Italian Navy, U.S. Navy, NATO Modelling and Simulation Center of Excellence (M & S COE), BAAINBw, The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), University College London and many more.
