Lockheed Martin, as prime contractor leading a consortium of five major defense contractors, has been awarded a follow-on contract with an estimated value of $980 million to continue work on the Command, Control, Battle Management and Communications program for the Missile Defense Agency. The contractors, known as the Missile Defense National Team, will continue development, operations, and sustainment work.

The C2BMC program is the “integrating element” for the Ballistic Missile Defense System and links the various sensors and weapon systems. The system is the force multiplier providing capabilities to integrate and globally synchronize missile defense systems and operations. The majority of the work is conducted in Arlington, Va., Huntsville, Ala., and Colorado Springs, Colo.
