Supported by the United States Navy, Missile Defense Agency, Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT), and other partners, FTM-31 E1a deployed a real-world scenario to test the Aegis Weapon System, which was able to better target, identify and intercept the threat due to the software update. “The shield and spear of the fleet, Aegis has evolved to counter air, ballistic missiles and evolving threats across multiple domains from all regions, ranges and during all phases of flight,” said Joe DePietro, vice president and general manager of Naval Combat and Missile Defense Systems at Lockheed Martin. Aegis can rapidly deliver new capabilities, including solutions that integrate both SPY-1 and solid-state radars, and the growing SPY-7 family of radars. Due to its open architecture, Aegis delivers capability today and is flexible to grow with the demands of an ever-changing environment.
