In support of the ICS, Lockheed Martin is utilising a digital thread that encompasses the entire ecosystem, leveraging artificial intelligence (AI), DevSecOps, and model-based engineering to manage new upgrades and cyber security considerations from the beginning of the development cycle through sustainment.
Joe DePietro, vice-president and general manager for multi-domain combat solutions at Lockheed Martin, said, “Our 21st Century Security strategy is delivering capabilities like the Integrated Combat System, a next generation of combat management system capabilities to give decisionmakers the tools needed to determine a course of action and then execute their critical missions.”
The ICS SESI program is formerly known as the Surface Combatant Combat Systems Engineering Agent role.
Lockheed Martin has over five decades of experience providing the Aegis Weapon System to the Navy and international navies, and as the current provider of the Ship Self Defense System on large deck amphibious ships.
“By leveraging the best of industry, we are creating the environment to quickly develop and field capabilities that will keep the Navy ready for current and future threats,” DePietro added.
Lockheed Martin’s Integrated Combat System is designed as a scalable, netted combat management system, utilising common software and compute infrastructure, to rapidly field capability across all domains to the surface fleet.
