The successful execution of FTM-48 by the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) and the U.S. Navy Program Executive Office Integrated Warfare Systems (PEO IWS) demonstrates consistent evolution and innovation of the Lockheed Martin developed Aegis Combat System. “This is another step forward in proving capabilities in an operationally realistic scenario, which is crucial in outpacing evolving threats and staying ahead of the adversary,” said Joe DePietro, vice president and general manager at Lockheed Martin. What’s NextThe combat system continues to rapidly deliver new capabilities, and these solutions integrate both SPY-1 and a family of solid-state radars, to include Lockheed Martin’s TPY-6 and SPY-7 radars.
