Lockheed Martin has won an $8 million contract to provide an air and missile defense planner that will be integrated into the U.S. Air Force Air Operations Center.
The planner will link dissimilar weapon and sensor data with map-based planning tools and decision aids that will allow Air Operations Center operators collaborate and plan missions with greater speed and higher confidence, the company said.
The planner incorporates an open, non-proprietary software infrastructure that will allow the Air Force to rapidly introduce new capabilities. This open architecture also facilities integration with legacy systems and ultimately helps lower total ownership cost, Lockheed Martin said.
