Lockheed Martin awarded $4 billion MDA contract

The contractor will enhance command management and communications system for the Missile Defense Agency

Lockheed Martin has been awarded a more than $4 billion contract to continue developing the Command and Control, Battle Management and Communications System (C2BMC) for the Missile Defense Agency, based in Huntsville. Under this new contract, the system will be upgraded with the latest security technology for faster, multi-domain coordinated responses to emerging threats.

The contract has been broken down into three task orders. The first is the enterprise management and enterprise service systems; the second is the software development and the third is the product execution. The work will be performed at Lockheed’s facilities in Huntsville and Colorado Springs, Colorado.

“With C2BMC’s already well-established lines of reliable communication — operating 24/7, 365 days a year in more than 30 locations across the world — the ability to securely collaborate with other countries, across multiple domains, from any location in near real-time will be a game changer for the defense industry,” said Erika Marshall, Lockheed Martin C4ISR vice president. 

Part of the global integration of the system will be to link the system with allied nations’ systems for the first time. This integration will help the Department of Defense identify, organize and deliver integrated capabilities to better safeguard the U.S.

The contract has an ordering period of through April 30, 2029, with an option to extend through April 30, 2034.
