Space and Missile Defense Symposium
Space and Missile Defense Symposium (SMD)
August 9 – 11, 2022
Northrop Grumman is defining possible for some of the world’s most advanced missile defense technologies. From command systems to next generation interceptors, we’re working across multiple domains to ensure reliable, effective protection against traditional ballistic and emerging hypersonic threats.

“Challenges for Space and Missile Defense – Industry Perspective”
Northrop Grumman’s Key Missile Defense Programs
Next Generation Interceptor (NGI)
Protecting America from an incoming intercontinental ballistic missile attack is a complex task involving radars, space sensors, interceptors and a robust command and control system that must work as one. In 2021, Northrop Grumman was awarded a contract to design, develop, and deliver a Next Generation Interceptor, which is charged with tracking and destroying a new sphere of enemy missile threats.
Ground-Based Midcourse Defense System (GMD)
Northrop Grumman and GMD – Ready to Defend
GMD is the heart of the Missile Defense System and a key element of our nation’s defense against ballistic missile attacks.
Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System (IBCS)
Northrop Grumman is pioneering joint all-domain command and control with IBCS. The system’s resilient, open, modular, scalable architecture is foundational to deploying a truly integrated network of all available assets in the battlespace, regardless of source, service or domain. It senses, identifies, tracks and defeats evolving air and missile threats, enabling revolutionary “all-domain, every sensor, best effector” operations.
No threat is static. Today, we face the challenge of hypersonic missiles and maneuvering reentry vehicles that can move through the atmosphere at more than five times the speed of sound. Protecting the homeland and our regional forces against these modern destructive weapons is a significant challenge. Northrop Grumman is working on groundbreaking solutions to help defeat modern hypersonic missiles in various phases of flight.
Command, Control, Battle Management and Communications (C2BMC)
Command, Control, Battle Management and Communications (C2BMC) dynamically integrates and coordinates BMDS assets to increase system performance throughout the battlespace.
