Integrated Air and Missile Defense

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 ...
