Products support U.S. Navy’s Trident II D5 Missile Program
Microsemi Corporation extends its congratulations to Lockheed Martin on the U.S. Navy’s 158th, 159th and 160th successful test launches in March of the Trident II D5 Fleet Ballistic Missile (FBM). Microsemi has supported Lockheed Martin, the Navy’s strategic missile prime contractor, with a number of strategic designs and product offerings catered to this national defense program.
Microsemi products are used in the U.S. Navy’s Trident II D5 missile under the D5 Life Extension program, which encompasses the most up-to-date electronics suite for navigation and control of missiles.
The Trident II D5 FBM, built by Lockheed Martin, is the world’s most reliable large ballistic missile and is a strategically important part of the national defense and global nuclear deterrent network.
“Microsemi is pleased to have been a supplier of strategically important products to the Trident Missile Program since its inception,” said Mark Swanson, Microsemi’s global account manager for Lockheed Martin. “We would like to extend our congratulations to Lockheed Martin for the Navy’s successful testing of the Trident II D5. We are extremely pleased to have played such an important role in supporting the Trident II Program and its continued success over the years. Microsemi will continue to partner with the U.S. government and the defense contracting community to deliver robust solutions for the most demanding applications.”
