Solution Advances Mission Planning and Execution
The increasingly complex national and multi-national requirements for Integrated Air and Missile Defense requires a solution that deliver new levels of performance to address evolving threats. By linking weapon and sensor data with advanced map-based Command and Control (C2) capabilities, Lockheed Martin’s the DIAMONDShield™ C2 system provides operators a wide range of intuitive decision-support aids that allows them to plan and execute air defense missions with greater speed, higher confidence and reduced ownership costs.
In developing DIAMONDShield, Lockheed Martin leveraged years of expertise gained through the development of systems such as the Command, Control, Battle Management & Communications (C2BMC) system, which integrates multiple ballistic missile defensive weapons systems, and the Integrated Space Command & Control (ISC2) system that fuses data from several U.S. Air Force air, missile and space C2 systems.
The DIAMONDShield system hosts a suite of Integrated Air and Missile Defense capabilities that enables warfighters to manage a continuous C2 cycle, operating at the speed of the battlespace. The solution is unique, as it delivers a state-of-the-art solution that responds to the growing range of weapons capable of delivering threats by land, surface, air and space. At the core of the product, is a modern service oriented architecture, enabling sensors-to-shooters integration and interoperability the widest range of tactical communications, sensors, weapons and existing legacy systems. DIAMONDShield’s open architecture minimizes the system’s total cost of ownership and ensures today’s investments can be extended to meet the challenges of tomorrow. Visualization is presented in as set of user-optimized graphical displays with selectable features in 2D, 3D, and 4D. The interoperability enabled by DIAMONDShield ensures seamless C4I operations across services and coalition operations.
