Systima Technologies to Provide Key Component to Lockheed Martin for Next Generation Interceptor Building Hardware to Secure Our Nation.

[Mukilteo, WA, September, 2021] Systima Technologies (“Systima”) has been awarded
subcontract worth up to $20M for base and potential future option scope by Lockheed Martin
(NYSE: LMT) to provide hardware for its the Next Generation Interceptor (NGI) contract with
the U.S. Missile Defense Agency (MDA.)
The NGI is the newest interceptor program for the Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD)
system, which provides Combatant Commanders the capability to engage and destroy
intermediate- and long-range ballistic missile threats in space to protect the United States from
rogue nations.
Systima will provide the interceptor shroud and associated hardware. Systima has been at the
forefront of hypersonic missile shroud technology development since early experimental
programs such as the Hypersonic International Flight Research Experimentation (HIFiRE)
program. To support NGI and other Department of Defense (DoD) capacity needs, Systima has
recently expanded into a 330,000 sq/ft facility in Mukilteo, WA. The new facility provides the
infrastructure needed for Systima to support NGI and other critical DoD requirements.
“Systima is ready to provide a reliable and robust defense for our homeland against those who
wish to do us harm,” said Tom Prenzlow, President of Systima.
