Lockheed wins $870M contract to continue support of missile defense system

Lockheed Martin has won an $870 million contract to continue to support the Missile Defense Agency’s Ballistic Missile Defense System.

The Ballistic Missile Defense System is an integrated, layered architecture that provides multiple opportunities to destroy missiles and their warheads before they can reach their targets, the Missile Defense Agency said on their website.

Under the contract, Lockheed Martin will continue to provide engineering, development, test, integration, fielding and on-site operations and sustainment support for the command and control, battle management and communications system, according to the Defense Department.

Work will be performed in Arlington, Va., Huntsville, Ala., and Colorado Springs, Colo., and is expected to be completed Dec. 31, 2021.
