Lockheed Martin and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) have agreed to partner to jointly promote a Ground-based Air Defence (GBAD) system centred around the Lockheed Martin United Kingdom SkyKeeper and the BARAK MX system.

As part of the partnership, Lockheed Martin and IAI will promote their technological and manufacturing expertise in air defence solutions that protect military forces and high-value assets from missile threats around the world. This new cooperation is a direct result of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between the companies in July 2021 and after a review of relevant business opportunities.

Scott Arnold, Vice President, Integrated Air and Missile Defence, Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, said: “We’re looking forward to further developing our partnership with IAI and working together to deliver a state-of-the-art solution designed to address the critical gap in short- and medium-range ground-based air defence.”
