C2BMC Supports Real-World Operations 24-7 in 17 Time Zones
“C2BMC is a key component of the National Missile Defense mission,” said John Osborn, Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Services – Defense’s director of Missile Defense Systems. “The continued development, integration, test, and fielding of C2BMC provides real-world operations in support of our nation’s priorities and objectives.”
The C2BMC program is the “integrating element” for the Ballistic Missile Defense System and integrates the various sensors and weapon systems. The system is the force multiplier providing capabilities to integrate and globally synchronize missile defense systems and operations, providing an optimized, layered defense against all ranges of threats and in all phases of flight. The Lockheed Martin-led National Team B was originally awarded C2BMC in 2002 and majority of the work is conducted in Arlington, Va., Huntsville, Ala., and Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security company that employs about 140,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services.
