Lockheed wins Stratcom pact

Officials at Lockheed Martin Corp. announced that the company received a $213 million contract to develop the architecture for Strategic Command's (Stratcom) new network-centric planning and execution system.

The Integrated Strategic Planning and Analysis Network (ISPAN) will support the command's global attack, information operations, missile defense and nuclear deterrence missions. Lockheed Martin officials will combine older systems into a streamlined mission planning architecture to allow Stratcom commanders to monitor worldwide military and national security situations, according to an Aug. 26 company statement.

"The system will enable them to reach out to systems, sensors and forces worldwide to plan for time-critical strikes, computer network operations, space operations and global integrated missile defense," said Leroy Jeter, director of Stratcom programs for Lockheed Martin.

Company officials will work on the 10-year project at Offut Air Force Base, Neb. They said they will add dozens of jobs to complete the task, according to the statement.
