Multi-Domain Since Inception
Creating C2BMC, The Centerpiece of the U.S. Ballistic Missile Defense System
The Genesis of C2BMC
It is the policy of the United States to deploy as soon as is technologically possible an effective National Missile Defense system capable of defending the territory of the United States against limited ballistic missile attack.National Missile Defense Act of 1999
Working in the same rooms, in the same buildings, with the same identification badges, hundreds of employees from Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, Boeing, General Dynamics and many other critical small businesses became the Missile Defense National Team.
Paving the Way for Joint All Domain Operations
What should be clear is that today’s C2BMC looks nothing like the C2BMC of 2004. With its open, extensible architecture, this system has transformed into a true enabler for joint all domain operations – the next generation of multi-domain combat.
While the C2BMC system provides the United States with a revolutionary approach to missile defense, its open architecture foundation enables the system to be much more, changing and flexing with the needs and advancements of threats.
As the MDA addresses its expanded mission set of hypersonic, cruise and ballistic missile threats, the Lockheed Martin-led C2BMC National Team will continue working closely in a one team, one mission environment to bring innovation, agility and expanded capability into C2BMC.
