Lockheed Martin delivers the breadth and depth needed for ballistic missile and air defense, with the most extensive capabilities across boost, ascent, midcourse and terminal phases.  These solutions defend against ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, aircraft and other airborne threats.  Our role ranges from prime contractor for integrated air and missile defense (IAMD) weapons systems to developer of critical technologies, such as hit-to-kill interceptors and kill vehicles, seekers, precision pointing and tracking optics, radar and signal processing.  

Lockheed Martin pioneered hit-to-kill technology in the 1980s, and during Operation Iraqi Freedom, PAC-3 became the first combat-proven system using this technology of choice.  With an unmatched record of approximately 50 successful intercepts since then, systems developed by Lockheed Martin, such as PAC-3, THAAD and Aegis, continue to succeed in increasingly challenging tests.

Lockheed Martin also provides state-of-the-art IAMD command and control capabilities that enable the optimum employment of weapons and sensors against today's most sophisticated threats. Our planning, analysis and mission execution systems give operators the tools to truly integrate air and missile forces into a seamless airspace defense.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs about 123,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services.
