Lockheed Martin lands $44 million Stratcom contract

Lockheed Martin received a $44 million contract last week to continue work on the Air Force’s Integrated Space Command and Control (ISC2) system.

Lockheed Martin’s Mission Systems business unit will continue updating Strategic Command’s (Stratcom) command center and work on the Mobile Consolidated Command and Control and the Shared Early Warning systems. The company will also work on engineering requirements related to the Single Integrated Space Picture, the Space Situational Awareness Command and Control Test Bed, system operations training for network operations, and equipment installation at Stratcom’s Global Operations Center, according to an Oct. 7 Defense Department statement.

The contract also covers development and sustainment cost overruns in work related to ISC2 for fiscal 2005. The 15-year, $1.5 billion initiative upgrades the command and control system of Stratcom and the North American Aerospace Defense Command, which warns of aircraft, space, ballistic missile and information attacks against North America, to make it more interoperable in support of the National Command Authority and the Canadian Chief of the Defence Staff.

This spring, the military turned on the new command center inside the granite-hardened Cheyenne Mountain facility near Colorado Springs, Colo., marking the second operational capability of ISC2. Last year, Air Force officials flipped the switch on the first of three new computer systems inside Cheyenne Mountain called Air Mission Release 1.
