Line Spacing+- AFont Size+- Print This Article

MOORESTOWN, NEW JERSEY (BNS): Lockheed Martin's Aegis Combat System has demonstrated simultaneous anti-air warfare and ballistic missile defence capabilities during its first integrated air and missile defence test.

The successful test verified the capabilities of the most recent upgrade to the Aegis system, known as Baseline 9, which will provide integrated air and missile defence for the US Navy's fleet to engage multiple threats at the same time.

This test also marks the first time the Aegis system has used the multi-mission signal processor (MMSP) in a real-world environment where external aircraft are "jamming" the system.

The demonstration was conducted at the US Navy's land-based test facility, the Vice Admiral James H. Doyle Combat Systems Engineering Development Site in Moorestown, N.J.

As a supplement to the Navy's Baseline 9 system, MMSP combines next-generation Aegis BMD and anti-air warfare capabilities in an open combat system architecture. The processor is scalable and easily upgradeable.
