A Pentagon team office for the Distributed Common Ground System awarded the company a $2.6 million contract to update the infrastructure.
The DCGS Integration Backbone is the software infrastructure that agencies, coalition partners and military services use to exchange information.
The company will update security filtering, the data ingest framework and orders of magnitude in ingest and query capability.
Lockheed said it is taking a modular approach to the software update so it can integrate new applications.
The software architecture is designed so that DIB can release new capabilities incrementally without impacting ongoing mission operations, according to the company.
