The Missile Defense Agency has awarded a contract modification worth up to $129 million to Lockheed Martin for continued support of MDA’s global system for integrating the often disparate elements of missile defense.
The modification to a $980 million contract awarded in December 2011, covers continued engineering, development, test, integration, fielding and on-site operations and sustainment support for the Command and Control, Battle Management and Communications system.
C2BMC operates at more than 70 sites around the world, synchronizing the operations of missile defense systems, autonomous sensors and operators in order to provide the layered, redundant capabilities necessary for global response. The system integrates command and control of a variety of missile-related systems—from Space Based Infrared System satellites to AEGIS and Patriot missiles—that weren’t intitally designed to work together.
Under the latest modification, which covers work through January 2018, the total values of Lockheed’s C2BMC contract now stands at $1.2 billion.
