USA: Lockheed Martin Signs Aegis Ballistic Missile Contract Modification

Lockheed Martin Signs Aegis Ballistic Missile Contract Modification

Moorestown-based Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Training has signed a USD 13.6 million modification to Aegis Ballistic Missile contract.

 

Following this deal, the contractor will support advanced concepts initiatives by the Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense Program Office to identify technology for introduction into present and future Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense Baselines/Spirals.

Aegis BMD ships on Ballistic Missile Defense patrol, detect and track ballistic missiles of all ranges – including Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles and report track data to the missile defense system.

Lockheed Martin will perform the work, which is expected to be completed by June 30, 2014, in Moorestown, N.J.

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.
