Targets and Countermeasures


Lockheed Martin’s Targets and Countermeasures Program provides unarmed targets designed to represent adversary missiles to permit realistic testing of the weapon systems and other elements of the Ballistic Missile Defense System.

Through September 2013, Lockheed Martin has achieved 45 successful target missions out of 46 since 1996. Lockheed Martin’s unmatched 98-percent reliability rate has included unitary and separating targets, spanning land, sea and air launches.   

Lockheed Martin performs Targets and Countermeasures program management, design and systems engineering in Huntsville, Ala., and production in Courtland, Ala., and Ampthill, England, U.K.
