AEGIS Case Study
Aegis, developed and produced by Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Trainers (MST), is the world’s preeminent Combat Management System. It uses powerful radar and advanced software to simultaneously track, identify, and target hostile contacts, including air, surface and subsurface threats. Aegis also provides a Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) which allows multiple ships to interoperate to protect entire battlegroup and theatre assets.
Aegis is deployed aboard U.S. Navy cruisers and destroyers, and in the surface fleets of Australia, Norway, Japan, and other allied nations. A shore-based version of Aegis is also used for missile defense in Europe and other locations world-wide. Aegis is named for the mythological shield of Poseidon, and is known as the “shield of the fleet”.
In 2001, Kongsberg Geospatial was selected to provide high performance mapping and user interface software technology for the Aegis TACSIT Display System, and the company has continued to develop and provide enhanced software products to meet continually evolving mission requirements.
