Lockheed Martin won a $250 million contract to continue to support the air defense, missile warning and space defense systems at U.S. Northern Command and U.S. Strategic Command.

The contract covers three one-year options, and has a total potential value of $250 million.

Under the first contract, Lockheed Martin modernized the air defense, missile warning and space command and control information technology infrastructure, integrating and replacing more than 30 legacy stove-piped systems.

“Lockheed Martin is honored to sustain these critical missions,” said Cliff Spier, vice president of command and control solutions for Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Solutions-Defense. “

By integrating mission critical networks between U.S. Northern Command, U.S. Strategic Command and North American Aerospace Defense, the new contract provides geographically separated commanders the ability to monitor and assess multi-mission threats concurrently.

Under the sustainment contract, Lockheed Martin will support the space, air defense and missile warning missions, ensuring that information and data is seamlessly shared between those and other C2 systems. The air defense and missile warning missions are part of the Integrated Tactical Warning Attack Assessment mission, which provides warning to the president if North America is under attack. The space mission system is used to catalog space objects and perform conjunction assessments to provide manned space flight safety and protect other key space assets.

Since 2000, Lockheed Martin has supported geographically diverse components of the ISC2 system worldwide. The system has personnel at Offutt Air Force Base, Peterson Air Force Base, Vandenberg Air Force Base, Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station, and other locations.
