Command Control Battle Management Communications (C2BMC)

Command, Control, Battle Management, and Communications (C2BMC) System

Multi-Domain Missile Defense

The Missile Defense Agency conducts multiple operational and developmental tests each year to test various aspects of the Missile Defense System (MDS). To provide multiple opportunities to destroy hostile missiles in all phases of flight, the MDS uses an integrated, "layered" architecture. The integrating element and foundation for that architecture is the Command, Control, Battle Management, and Communications system – C2BMC.
Operationally fielded  since 2004, C2BMC supports continuous operations 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. By integrating regional, theater and national commands into a single strategic command & control weapon system, C2BMC provides a global view of the battlespace. This enables commanders at all levels to systematically plan, collectively see and dynamically manage designated networked sensors and weapons systems to achieve global and regional mission objectives.

As leader of the C2BMC team, Lockheed Martin directs a partnership of highly responsive industry leaders developing and fielding the backbone of America’s missile defense. Together, this national team supports the design, development, test, integration and fielding of hardware and software elements that enable the MDS to function effectively and continually.

C2BMC is the CENTERPIECE of the Missile Defense System

As the “S” in the Missile Defense System, C2BMC links the multitude of terrestrial, space and sea-based missile  sensors and weapons systems into an integrated system-of-systems to provide a common view of potential or current threats across the globe. Through C2BMC, MDS weapons systems are able to engage and intercept missiles leveraging launch-on-remote sensor data capability, which significantly increases the defended area that the weapon system can negate the missile threat.
