C4ISR is the foundation of every mission

In today’s world, complexity can be your greatest enemy or your greatest asset. That’s why Lockheed Martin is developing solutions that provide a clear picture of what’s happening around the world—and the infrastructure to act on it in real-time.

See how our Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) solutions are simplifying the complex—turning data into knowledge. And knowledge into action.





Situational Expertise

Our C4ISR technologies enable our customers to accomplish a diverse set of missions in the air, on the sea’s surface, beneath the surface, in space and on land.

Command & Control
Operators gain decision advantage from command and control systems that allow for parallel – not sequential – planning and decision-making abilities. These systems enhance situational awareness and keep ahead of adversaries in accelerated operational environments.

intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance
Across air, land, sea and space, thousands of sensors onboard manned and unmanned military platforms are collecting huge amounts of data. These ISR systems task, collect, process, analyze, fuse and disseminate the most mission-critical information.

NextGen Communications
Information dominance requires secure, resilient and adaptable networks and communications. By leveraging sophisticated satellite, wireless and tactical radio technology, we ensure that forces are able to share and receive information securely.

Information Fusion & Data Analytics
Volume. Velocity. Variety. These are some of the biggest challenges with big data on the battlefield. Our systems support decision advantage by performing advanced correlation, fusion and analysis across multiple domains and classification levels.

Sophisticated cyber solutions comprehensively defend networks and systems from advanced persistent threats—all while helping to stay ahead of the adversary’s next attack.

Electronic Warfare & Spectrum Dominance
Awareness and surveillance. Protection and denial. These are the keys to dominating the electromagnetic spectrum. Our work in photonics, advanced computing and machine learning are delivering advanced technologies that help impede and outpace electromagnetic threats.

Adversaries are highly adaptive and threat environments are becoming increasingly complex. Fifth Generation C4ISR is a joint battle management system that can gather data, understand it, and communicate freely with each and all of its components. 

By translating technical capability into operational reality, Fifth Generation C4ISR ensures low-risk, technologically superior solutions that address ever-evolving challenges.

Vice President of C4ISR, Lockheed Martin

Rob leads a comprehensive portfolio of more than 100 programs that provide C4ISR services and capabilities for all branches of the U.S. military, multiple national agencies and numerous international customers.

C2BMC is a critical element of nearly every MDA flight, ground and operational test executed since 2004,” said Dr. Rob Smith, vice president of C4ISR for Lockheed Martin. “In partnership with the MDA, we are leading a highly skilled team to ensure that America’s missile defense backbone always remains one step ahead of our adversaries.”

As threats become more sophisticated, the best and the brightest missile defense engineers continue to refine the C2BMC system on a spiral development schedule, continually delivering increased speed, accuracy and usability. With this type of agile development process, software developers can make iterative changes without disrupting operations. Future capabilities include an expanded sensor network, more complex fusion and discrimination algorithms, and advancements in human-machine teaming.
