Motivated by the talent of our engineering workforce, we help prime partners and defense customers achieve program goals by providing process and project management services that deliver efficiency and end-user satisfaction. This work includes:
We provide process and project management services for several advanced weapon system programs, including:
There are four main components to THAAD: the launcher, interceptors, radar, and fire control. The launcher is mounted on a truck for mobility and storability. There are eight interceptors per launcher. Current Army configurations of THAAD batteries include six launchers and 48 interceptors. The THAAD system utilizes the Army Navy / Transportable Radar Surveillance (AN/TPY-2) radar to detect and track enemy missiles at a range of up to 1,000 kilometers. The fire control system is the communication and data-management backbone and is equipped with an indigenous THAAD Fire Control and Communications system. The Command, Control, Battle Management, and Communications (C2BMC) also provides tracking and cueing information for THAAD from other regional sensors on Aegis and Patriot systems.
