MARLTON, N.J.

The United States Joint Forces Command (USJFCOM) has chosen Lockheed Martin to provide technical and engineering support for the Joint Battle Management Command and Control (JBMC2) Concept, Architecture and Requirements System (JCARS).

Under this task order, Lockheed Martin will provide engineering and technical support for an enterprise-based management information system to gather, collate, analyze, prioritize, document, and trace all joint Command, Control, Communications, Computer and Intelligence (C4I) required capabilities, operational concepts, integrated operational architectures, systems specifications and other supporting information. The task will focus on the systems engineering and technical support necessary for implementation and sustainment.

USJFCOM is tasked to "oversee and direct joint BMC2 capabilities for joint integration and interoperability," and establish and coordinate joint BMC2 mission and capability area and systems-of-systems capability requirements. Complementing the Joint BMC2 is the Joint Concept, Architecture, and Requirements Systems (JCARS). JCARS will be a management information system designed to directly support USJFCOM's new joint BMC2 responsibilities on behalf of the Combatant Commands.

"We look forward to beginning work on this important task to support USJFCOM as they implement JBMC2," said Carey Smith, Vice President, Naval and Maritime Programs for Lockheed Martin Systems Management, the company awarded the task order. "Successful implementation of JCARS is key to USJFCOM's mission and we are committed to providing the highest levels of engineering and technical support available."

Headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, Lockheed Martin employs about 125,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture and integration of advanced technology systems, products and services. The Corporation reported 2002 sales of $26.6 billion.
