The highest stakes demand the highest degree of precision.
Shooting a missile down with a missile was once a concept only dreamed up in science fiction novels. We’ve made it scientific fact.
So what does it take to spot an enemy missile launch, identify its intended target, calculate its exact trajectory, launch an interceptor and guide it to destroy the threat in mid-air? All in a matter of seconds? It’s not easy – but at Lockheed Martin, we help customers solve the world’s most complex challenges.
Here’s how ...
Integrated Approach to Defense Technology
We see the whole picture. From targets and interceptors, to satellites, radars, seekers and command and control solutions – Lockheed Martin’s technology is embedded in every facet of the missile defense architecture.
The missile defense challenge is an engineering challenge. And that’s what we do best. To counter advancing threats, we pioneered hit-to-kill technology, advanced cyber security and improved interceptor accuracy, lethality, range and reliability.
As the world leader in missile defense, our systems have achieved more than 100 successful intercepts in combat and flight testing since 1984 – more than any other company – and 50 successful target missions since 1996.
Partnerships are an important part of how we do business. Supporting the U.S. Government and allies around the world, we consider our customers’ unique missions as our own, continuously improving our products capabilities to meet their evolving threats.
The best defense has layers. Our systems provide multi-tier defenses that work in concert to defeat incoming threats from boost to ballistic.
Precision and Accuracy
We meet challenges head on. Our hit-to-kill interceptors have the agility and accuracy to directly destroy threats. Every time.
