NATO countries soon to be protected by the development of an advanced territorial Ballistic Missile
Lockheed Martin and ThalesRaytheonSystems are joining forces to provide NATO with a territorial Ballistic Missile Defence (BMD) command and control capability (C2).
“Lockheed Martin delivered the Defence Design System for NATO’s BMD planning capability. We will leverage that success, as well as our expertise in command and control, weapon system development and systems integration to achieve the Alliance goals,” said Dr. Rob Smith, VP of C4ISR for Lockheed Martin’s Rotary and Mission Systems. “Lockheed’s success in delivering the C2 capability for US Ballistic Missile Defence System is a result of our focus on end user needs. We delivered a very complex C2 capability that is intuitive and effective for mission execution. We accomplished this in partnership with Raytheon and other US companies and we look forward to delivering this capability with ThalesRaytheonSystems.”
According to Eric Marceau, CEO of ThalesRaytheonSystems, “This Teaming Agreement codifies the relationship established with Lockheed Martin since 2008 to deliver NATO’s Theater Missile Defence capability, in each operational decisive moment. It will further our collaboration to deliver the full spectrum capability the Alliance requires for territorial Ballistic Missile Defence."
