U.S. ballistic missile defense training system reaches milestone

Lockheed Martin announced on Tuesday that it has completed the preliminary design review for an upcoming upgrade to the training component of the Command, Control, Battle Management and Communications system.

The C2BMC is a program that provides connectivity and enables on-site operations and sustainment for global combatant commanders. It is also used for integrating and synchronizing individual missile defense elements.

"C2BMC is an integral part of all system ground and flight tests," Jim Quinn, vice president of C4ISR systems for Lockheed Martin information systems and global solutions, said. "This design review ensures that the system continues to evolve to meet customer expectations."

Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that uses its resources for research, design, development, manufacture, integration, and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products, and services. Lockheed Martin employs 118,000 people worldwide.

The Lockheed Martin Missile Defense National Team completed a major milestone to upgrading the C2BMC system by finishing the preliminary design review. This team is responsible for the development and eventual deployment of the C2BMC system.

The new design of the C2BMC system will help provide a training system that is flexible and able to simulate the regular C2BMC system with digital models.
