C4ISR is Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance

C4ISR is the foundation of every mission.

Lockheed Martin’s C4ISR technologies bring clarity to global complexity. We’re developing the technologies and infrastructure to detect and act with speed, precision and confidence.

Information Dominance

Information Dominance

Battlespace Awareness

Battlespace Awareness

Decision Advantage

Decision Advantage

Situational Expertise

Our C4ISR technologies enable our customers to accomplish a diverse set of missions in the air, on the sea’s surface, beneath the surface, in space and on land.
Command and Control

Command & Control

Operators gain decision advantage from command and control systems that allow for parallel – not sequential – planning and decision-making abilities. These systems enhance situational awareness and keep ahead of adversaries in accelerated operational environments.


Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance

Across air, land, sea and space, thousands of sensors onboard manned and unmanned military platforms are collecting huge amounts of data. These ISR systems task, collect, process, analyze, fuse and disseminate the most mission-critical information.

Next Gen Comms

NextGen Communications

Information dominance requires secure, resilient and adaptable networks and communications. By leveraging sophisticated satellite, wireless and tactical radio technology, we ensure that forces are able to share and receive information securely.

Information Fusion

Information Fusion & Data Analytics

Volume. Velocity. Variety. These are some of the biggest challenges with big data on the battlefield. Our systems support decision advantage by performing advanced correlation, fusion and analysis across multiple domains and classification levels.


Sophisticated cyber solutions comprehensively defend networks and systems from advanced persistent threats—all while helping to stay ahead of the adversary’s next attack.

Electronic Warfare

Electronic Warfare & Spectrum Dominance

Awareness and surveillance. Protection and denial. These are the keys to dominating the electromagnetic spectrum. Our work in photonics, advanced computing and machine learning are delivering advanced technologies that help impede and outpace electromagnetic threats.

Next Generation Command & Control
Today’s challenges to global security are accelerating. Prevailing in future conflicts requires the ability to understand and respond to situations faster than our adversaries.
SBIRS uses infrared surveillance to provide early missile warning for the U.S. military and is considered one of the nation’s highest priority space programs.
U-2 Dragon Lady
No other high-altitude ISR asset operating today – or in development – can accomplish the daily peacetime Strategic Reconnaissance Operations of the U-2S, or compete with its future capabilities.

Operating in Today's Multi Domain Environment

Adversaries are highly adaptive and threat environments are becoming increasingly complex. Fifth Generation C4ISR is a joint battle management system that can gather data, understand it, and communicate freely with each and all of its components. 

By translating technical capability into operational reality, Fifth Generation C4ISR ensures low-risk, technologically superior solutions that address ever-evolving challenges.
