Ballistic missile defense simulation contract won by Lockheed MartinNews
August 07, 2019
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) awarded Lockheed Martin a $240 million contract to support the modeling and simulation framework for the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). Through this contract, the Modeling and Simulation Contract ? Framework and Tools (MASC-F), Lockheed Martin will ensure BMDS readiness for evolving threats by continually assessing system configurations, engagement conditions, and target phenomena.
MASC-F will provide additional products and tools to support the agency's modeling and simulation enterprise and provide critical data to assess the operational effectiveness and survivability of the BMDS and its elements.
Through computer-based tools, modeling, algorithms, and analysis techniques, MASC-F will enable the integration of real-world hardware and constructive models from each of the BMDS program elements into one system that represents the performance of fielded BMDS equipment. These will then be used to evaluate fielded and conceptual BMDS architectures against a variety of threats in realistic environments.
Work on the MASC-F program will be performed at Lockheed Martin's Huntsville, Ala. facility.
