Lockheed Martin has added an air and missile option to its Dragon family of ISR systems. The newest option, called Dragon Dome, links ISR, air operations and missile defense systems at the battle management level, according to a company press release.
Based on Lockheed’s internally developed DIAMONDShield air and missile defense system, Dragon Dome creates a four-dimensional view of the battlespace, as well as advising operators on the best system to destroy a threat. It uses open software and NATO standards and communications protocols, and is net-centric interoperable with U.S., NATO and coalition forces.
“In essence, it provides a given nation with a native advanced C2 system that can network quickly and efficiently with Coalition forces,” said Lockheed Martin.
“Dragon Dome can dramatically improve the ability to make decisions faster, operate command centers with fewer people, and have higher confidence in achieving mission success,” said Jim Quinn, vice president of C4ISR systems with Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Solutions.
