What is Multi-Domain Operations?
Today’s challenges to global security aren’t just changing – they’re accelerating faster than ever before. Our adversaries are highly adaptive and confronting us from every domain across air, sea, space, land and cyber.
The aircraft, satellites, ships and ground vehicles our forces operate today collect an abundance of information. Processing and analyzing that amount of data is a challenge, especially when you factor in multiple levels of security at which those systems operate.
The solution? A new warfighting concept known as Multi-Domain Operations. By synchronizing major systems and crucial data sources with revolutionary simplicity, Multi-Domain Operations provides a complete picture of the battlespace and empowers warfighters to quickly make decisions that drive action.
Making the Right Decisions, Faster
Lockheed Martin is committed to helping the Department of Defense realize their vision for multi-domain operations by putting the best capabilities into our warfighter’s hands with reliability, speed and dedication.
By leveraging data as a weapon, our warfighters are empowered to make decisions that drive action – paralyzing, disrupting and overwhelming adversaries in a matter of seconds versus minutes, where seconds really matter. That’s our mission.
Demonstrating the Future Today
Lockheed Martin has performed a series of incremental demonstrations since 2013 to prove that aircraft can be modernized efficiently, and to demonstrate how advanced mission system capabilities can be rapidly added to an aircraft to increase capability.
Through a series of four multi-domain command and control exercises, we have explored refinements to processes, concepts of operations and technologies to identify solutions for connecting systems across domains, enabling synchronized effects.

Autonomy and Artificial Intelligence
There’s no doubt that on the battlefield and at home, autonomy and artificial intelligence (AI) are rapidly becoming part of our daily human experience. We are building AI systems that will keep people in control while enabling them to be safer, and increase mission success in the toughest and most unpredictable of situations.
Directed Energy systems use highly-focused energy to disable targets with pinpoint accuracy. Our engineers are at the forefront of transforming high-power laser technology developed for factories into inventive and cost-effective defense capabilities for our customers.
