Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) announced on Thursday that it had secured a contract valued at up to $4.1 billion from the U.S. government’s Missile Defense Agency to advance the development of its battle command system. The contract focuses on the enhancement and modernization of the Command and Control, Battle Management, and Communications (C2BMC)-Next system. C2BMC serves as a crucial hardware and software interface within the U.S. ballistic missile defense system, enabling coordinated responses to emerging threats.

The company highlighted that a key aspect of C2BMC-Next will involve bolstering global integration, potentially linking this extensively tested and operationally deployed system with allied nations for the first time. The contract spans from May 1, 2024, through April 30, 2029, with the option to extend until April 30, 2034. Lockheed Martin intends to carry out the upgrades at its new facilities in Huntsville, Alabama, and Colorado Springs, Colorado.
