Lockheed Martin to Provide Missile Defense Planner

February 5, 2014

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 (AOC), the company recently announced. Lockheed Martin’s planner will link dissimilar weapon and sensor data with map-based planning tools and decision aids that will allow AOC operators to collaboratively plan missions with greater speed and higher confidence. 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. In addition, the planner incorporates an open, non-proprietary software infrastructure that will allow the Air Force to rapidly introduce new capabilities. This open architecture also facilities integration with legacy systems and ultimately helps lower total ownership costs.
