Integrated Air and Missile Defense

The highest stakes demand the highest degree of precision.

Shooting a missile down with a missile was once a concept only dreamed up in science fiction novels. We’ve made it scientific fact.

So what does it take to spot an enemy missile launch, identify its intended target, calculate its exact trajectory, launch an interceptor and guide it to destroy the threat in mid-air? All in a matter of seconds? It’s not easy – but at Lockheed Martin, we help customers solve the world’s most complex challenges.

Here’s how ...

Layered Levels of Defense   ___
Aegis Combat System
Aegis is designed as a complete system: missile launching element, computer programs, radar and displays are fully integrated to work together.
Command Control Battle Management Communications (C2BMC)
Lockheed Martin provides innovative, cost-efficient airborne and ground system configurations that address a wide range of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance requirements.
Integrated Combat System
The future of the ICS is a continously evolving ecosystem that will allow for fully integrated systems and neutralize threats across all domains.
Long Range Discrimination Radar
The Long Range Discrimination Radar (LRDR) program is the backbone of the Missile Defense Agency’s layered defense strategy to protect the U.S. homeland from ballistic missile attack.
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.
Next Generation Interceptor (NGI)
When every second counts to protect the nation, our customers rely on Lockheed Martin to create, design and develop the most advanced hit to kill technology.
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.
Targets and Countermeasures
Lockheed Martin’s Targets and Countermeasures Program provides targets designed to represent adversary missiles for realistic testing.
Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD)
When enemies attack, governments must be ready to defend their soldiers, citizens and infrastructure.
