    Posted by George I. Seffers

    The NATO Air Command and Control System Management Agency (NACMA) on behalf of the NATO Active Layered Theatre Ballistic Missile Defence Programme Office and in coordination with the NATO Command, Control and Consultation Agency, has signed a contract with ThalesRaytheonSystems to deliver a Ballistic Missile Defence Interim Capability element at NATO’s Air Command in Ramstein, Germany.

    The contract value is €3 million.

    Implementation of the contract, which is expected within three months, will deliver a key component toward NATO’s objective of declaring an interim missile defence capability at its summit in Chicago in May.

    It will give NATO the capability to conduct 24/7 territorial missile defence operations while simultaneously deploying a theatre missile defence command and control capability to any necessary theatre of operations.

    Northrop gets missile defense contract

    MCLEAN, Va. – Northrop Grumman Corp. has been awarded a $96 million follow-on contract by the U.S. Missile Defense Agency.

    The contract deals with MDA’s Missile Defense Command, Control, Battle Management and Communications.

    Northrop Grumman received the contract as one of five major defense contractors on the Missile Defense National Team to continue development, operations and sustaining work on the program.

    The C2BMC program is seen as a crucial component of the U.S. ballistic missile defense strategy and is being designed to interconnect and integrate all the various elements of the U.S. ballistic missile defense system, the company said.

    C2BMC is being designed to assist integrated ballistic missile defense by linking sensors, maximizing the agency’s ability to detect and track threats. It also integrates ballistic missile defense capabilities by using global sensor and data networks and space-based intelligence assets.

    Given the likelihood of possible simultaneous missile launches, a key C2BMC component is the system’s ability to engage multiple threats.
