  • As the developer of the Aegis Combat System Lockheed Martin continues its 40-year legacy as the Aegis Combat System Engineering Agent (CSEA) for the U.S. Navy. The Aegis CSEA is responsible for combat system engineering services – including the design development integration test and life cycle support – for all Aegis-equipped ships.
  • Over time, Aegis has evolved new capabilities to counter emerging threats and take advantage of new technologies. The latest Aegis configuration, called Baseline 9, presents an open architecture framework to allow endless flexibility.
  • We’ve taken the Aegis Combat System from an anti-ship missile system to the basis for the U.S. approach to global missile defense.
  • Aegis Ashore provides a proven, affordable solution to expand the protection of the Aegis Combat System to inland areas.
  • Lockheed Martin provides superior performance while continually evolving the Aegis system to keep pace with enemy threats.
  • Aegis seamlessly integrates the SPY-1 radar, the MK 41 Vertical Launching System, the SM-3 missile and the weapon system’s command and control system (C2BMC).
