U.S. Air Force Selected Lockheed Martin to Provide Software that Integrates Air Operations & Missile Defence Assets

Software Planner Correlates Disparate Data into One Dynamic Battlespace Picture

Issue 51 - March 2014

Lockheed Martin  is developing a software planner that integrates air operations and missile defence 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 defence planner that will be integrated into the U.S. Air Force Air Operations Center.

“This planner offers an unprecedented capability to analyze multiple sources of information to support rapid and efficient deployment decisions,” said Rob Smith, vice president of C4ISR for Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Solutions. “Our goal is to enhance situational awareness and facilitate collaborative planning for all combatant commands.”
