The U.S. Navy’s Aegis Ashore program is the land-based component of the Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMD). It leverages the present and future Aegis BMD capabilities to adapt to the evolving ballistic missile security environment. Deploying land-based BMD capabilities through the deployable Aegis Ashore program will compliment the sea-based deployment of Aegis BMD capabilities.
Electromet was selected by SPAWAR, SAIC and CENTURUM to provide rugged, integrated, electronic cabinets in support of the Aegis Ashore Missile Defense Test Complex (AAMDTC) being built at the Pacific Missile Range Facility in Kauai, Hawaii. Delivery will occur in October 2012.
