Lockheed Martin introduces DiamondShield C2 system

Lockheed Martin has unveiled a new command and control (C2) platform that provides warfighters a wide range of intuitive decision-support aids, allowing them to plan and execute air defence missions with greater speed and higher confidence. Called DiamondShield, the system was developed to address the need for increased performance integrated air and missile defence systems in complex national and multi-national operations.

DiamondShield has been designed to respond to the growing range of weapons capable of delivering threats by land, surface, air and space. According to the Lockheed Martin, the system hosts a suite of integrated air and missile defence capabilities that enables warfighters to manage a continuous C2 cycle, operating at the speed of the battlespace. Visualization is presented in a set of user-optimised graphical displays with selectable features in 2D, 3D, and 4D. At the core of the product, is a modern service oriented architecture, enabling sensors-to-shooter integration and interoperability with the widest range of tactical communications, sensors, weapons and existing legacy systems.

Bruce Wright, LtGen, USAF (Retired), vice president, C4ISR, Lockheed Martin Government Relations, said: ‘DIAMONDShield offers an unprecedented integrated capability that enables commanders and their air operations centre staffs to rapidly analyse multiple sources of information, enabling them to make swift, efficient decisions regarding the deployment of combat air forces.’

Cliff Spier, vice president of C2 Solutions for Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Solutions-Defense, added: ‘DIAMONDShield transforms operational command and control of air and missile defence assets into a collaboration and optimisation of assets. We have brought everything together to provide users with an integrated view of a complex battlespace.’
