Lockheed Martin has been awarded an Air Force contract to upgrade air tasking systems.

The company will update the Air Tasking Order Management System (ATOMS), according to a Lockheed Martin news release. "Lockheed Martin will update over 250 air tasking requirements, which will improve interoperability between ATOMS and other management systems, such as legacy Air Force and Army air management systems. Lockheed Martin will also enhance net-enabled warfare capabilities, which will allow the Air Force to better manage remote guided and controlled weapons through the system."

In turn, ATOMS is replacing part of the Theater Battle Management Core System (TBMCS), which is the heart of air operations centers. ATOMS is part of the Command and Control Air Operations Suite (C2AOS), which is providing the next generation of TBMCS replacement applications.
