PHILADELPHIA (BNS): The system that integrates the launch hardware and software to provide weapon control for the Tomahawk Land Attack Missile is being modernised.

Tactical Tomahawk Weapons Control System (TTWCS) provides firing units the ability to prepare, control, and launch Tomahawk missiles and is one of three major components that comprise the Tomahawk Weapons System.

This TTWCS hardware and software upgrade provides improvements for specific mission and launch timelines.

As part of an incremental approach, the present TTWCS upgrade will be installed on surface platforms only- Ticonderoga Class Cruisers (CG) and Arleigh Burke Class Destroyers (DDG).

Lockheed Martin, a member of the Tomahawk Weapons Control System Development Activity in partnership with the US Navy Labs, is upgrading the TTWCS.
