Lockheed Martin has won a $129 million contract extension to continue to support the Missile Defense Agency’s Command and Control, Battle Management and Communications system.
The C2BMC system is a vital operational system that enables the U.S. president, secretary of defense and combatant commanders to plan ballistic missile defense operations in order to see the battle develop and to manage networked sensors and weapons sensors, according to the agency’s website.
Under the contract, in support of the system, Lockheed Martin will provide engineering, development, test, integration, fielding and on-site operations and sustainment support for the system.
This contract modification brings the total contract value to $1.2 billion, according to the defense Department.
Work will be performed in Arlington, Va., Huntsville, Ala., and Colorado Springs, Colo., and is expected to be completed in January 2018.
