The State Division has made a dedication approving a potential International Army Sale to the Authorities of the UK of Ballistic Missile Protection Radar (BMDR) and Command and Management Battle Administration and Communications (C2BMC) and associated gear for an estimated value of $700 million. This proposed sale will assist the international coverage objectives and nationwide safety targets of america by enhancing the safety of a NATO Ally that may be a power for political stability and financial progress in Europe. Implementation of this proposed sale could require the project of roughly 15 U.S. Authorities and as much as 100 contractor representatives to the UK, at any given time, throughout the development, set up, integration and testing of the BMDR and C2BMC functionality.

The Authorities of the UK (UK) has requested to purchase one (1) Ballistic Missile Protection Radar (BMDR); and two (2) Command and Management Battle Administration and Communications (C2BMC) consumer nodes (with community functionality required to hook up with the C2BMC System to assist radar operations). Additionally included are design and development of a mixed radar-equipment shelter; encryption units, safe communication gear, and different required COMSEC gear to assist radar operations; spare and restore elements, assist and testing gear, publications and technical documentation, personnel coaching and coaching gear, U.S. Authorities and contractor engineering, technical and logistics assist companies, and different associated parts of logistical and program assist. The principal contractor will likely be Lockheed Martin, Moorestown, NJ.


Command, Management, Battle Administration & Communications (C2BMC) system

By means of ongoing modernization to the command, management, battle administration and communications (C2BMC) system, Lockheed Martin’s workforce has considerably enhanced the Missile Protection Company’s Ballistic Missile Protection System. A part of this C2BMC modernization is an have interaction on distant functionality that permits the Aegis Weapon System to have interaction threats based mostly on info supplied totally from C2BMC distant sensor and monitor information. Operationally fielded in 2004, C2BMC permits warfighters in any respect ranges to systematically plan ballistic missile protection operations, collectively see the battle develop and dynamically handle designated networked sensors and weapons. Fielded in fiscal yr 2019 to the U.S. European and U.S. Central Instructions, C2BMC’s have interaction on distant functionality helps the European Phased Adaptive Strategy Part III milestone, which is designed to guard U.S. deployed forces and NATO allies in Europe from ballistic missile assaults.

Previous its deployment to the combatant instructions, C2BMC’s have interaction on distant functionality was efficiently demonstrated as a part of a Missile Protection Company flight check in December 2018, the place the Aegis Weapon System utilized distant sensor information supplied by C2BMC to plan, launch and interact a missile with out detecting the goal with the natural Aegis radar. Utilizing its floor, air and space-based command and management structure, C2BMC detected the risk, tracked the missile by its connection to ballistic missile protection radars, locked onto the goal, then relayed the goal location to the Aegis system. By enabling Aegis interceptors to conduct operations based mostly totally on off-board radar info, C2BMC significantly expands the vary of the Aegis methods. FTI-03 demonstrated the effectiveness of the European Phased Adaptive Strategy Part III structure. It additionally showcased the importance of C2BMC to the way forward for built-in multi-domain missile protection operations.
