Moorestown, N.J. (PRWEB) January 26, 2016
ASRC Federal Mission Solutions will support the test and development of the Long Range Discrimination Radar (LRDR) as a key contributor to the Lockheed Martin team. The radar system will form the backbone of the Missile Defense Agency’s strategy for an effective ballistic missile defense to protect the U.S. homeland from ballistic missile attacks.
ASRC Federal Mission Solutions will provide critical components to product execution, specifically focused on software engineering support out of the company’s Moorestown, New Jersey, office. Additionally, ASRC Federal Mission Solutions will leverage its presence in Alaska to support construction, operations and maintenance activities in Clear, Alaska, where LRDR will be built and tested.
“ASRC Federal Mission Solutions has partnered with Lockheed Martin on a number of missile defense initiatives that are critical to our nation’s safety including the Aegis Combat System and Aegis Ashore. We look forward to continuing our successful industry relationship on this project,” said Joe Buss, ASRC Federal Mission Solutions vice president.
LRDR is a key component of the Missile Defense Agency’s Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) that will provide tracking data to enable the Ground-based Midcourse Defense system to engage long-range ballistic missile threats to the U.S. Homeland. LRDR will provide advanced discrimination of incoming threats and offer precise guidance to interceptor missiles that will eliminate these threats.
Operational testing of the system is planned to take place in 2020.
