PEO MS

Program Executive Office - Missiles and Space

About PEO MS

The U.S. Army Program Executive Office Missiles and Space develops, fields and sustains defensive and offensive integrated fires capabilities in support of the joint all-domain battlespace.

PEO MS is on the cutting edge of the Army’s long-range precision fires, air and missile defense, hypersonic, directed energy, counter-unmanned aerial systems, integrated fires mission command, and aviation and ground missiles modernization initiatives. We are an indispensable acquisition leader, enabling U.S. warfighters, our allies and partners to defeat the threats of today and tomorrow.

The organization, workforce, and innovative acquisition processes provide a rapid and iterative approach to integrated fires capability development with the objective to reduce cost and acquisition risks, address technological obsolescence, and eliminate duplication of effort. PEO Missiles and Space is aligned to increase the speed of deliver, enable design tradeoffs in the requirements process, expand the role of Warfighters throughout the acquisitions process, and leverage rapid acquisition authorities and non-traditional suppliers. This approach – a major departure from previous practices and culture – allows for rapid response to changes in the operations environment, provides integrated multi-domain solutions, and complicates our competitors’ abilities to offset our systems.

Six project offices manage more than 30 programs of record which leverage state-of-the-art technology to meet full-spectrum operations requirements:

  • Integrated Fires Rapid Capabilities Office (IFRCO)
  • Integrated Fires Mission Command (IFMC)
  • Short and Intermediate Effectors for Layered Defense (SHIELD)
  • Search, Track, Acquire, Radiate, Eliminate (STARE)
  • Strategic and Operational Rockets and Missiles (STORM)
  • Tactical Aviation and Ground Munitions (TAGM)

The IFRCO is the single point of entry for all requirements coming into PEO Missiles and Space and applies a system-of-systems acquisition approach across the portfolio to meet Warfighter needs and obtain the desired capabilities. The PEO Missiles and Space workforce collaborates across the portfolio, and with the Army Futures Command and the AFC Cross Functional Teams (CFT), as well as with the Rapid Capabilities and Critical Technologies Office (RCCTO), the Army Centers of Excellence, other Services, academia and the defense industry, to find and integrate solutions that meet Warfighter demands, WHEN they need it, WHERE they need it!

INTEGRATED FIRES RAPID CAPABILITIES OFFICE (IFRCO)

The Integrated Fires Rapid Capabilities Office (IFRCO) leads, plans, coordinates and synchronizes a systems-of-systems concept to ensure integration and interoperability are achieved between U.S. Army programs to support a full-spectrum, multiple-domain operations force.

Mission Deliver integrated fires capability to the U.S. Army and joint warfighting community.

INTEGRATED FIRES MISSION COMMAND (IFMC)

The Integrated Fires Mission Command (IFMC) Project Office provides common integrated fire control across all Army air and missile defense echelons, integrating with the joint architecture, to develop a mission command and fire control system that integrates sensors and weapons into a cohesive warfighting capability. IFMC develops and improves mission command components and sustains fielded systems to address warfighter requirements, providing flexibility to respond to evolving threats (sensor, interceptor, electronic warfare). IFMC is structured to enable the development of an overarching system of systems capability with all participating air defense artillery components functioning interdependently to provide total operational capabilities not achievable by the individual element systems.

IFMC provides life cycle management for the following products:

  • Integrated Battle Command System (IBCS)
  • Legacy PATRIOT Ground Support Equipment (GSE)
  • Air and Missile Defense Planning and Control System (AMDPCS)
  • Forward Area Air Defense Command and Control (FAAD C2)
  • Rocket, Artillery, Mortar (RAM) Warn
  • Remote Interceptor Guidance - 360 degrees (RIG-360)

Mission The Integrated Fires Mission Command (IFMC) Project Office mission is to develop, test, acquire, field, and sustain integrated fires capabilities to support the warfighter through weapon and sensor integration and a common mission command system across all domains in order to provide a decisive battlefield advantage.

Short and Intermediate Effectors for Layered Defense Project Office (SHIELD)

The Short and Intermediate Effectors for Layered Defense Project Office (SHIELD PO) serves as the Army’s centralized manager for the SHIELD family of missiles, sensors, lasers and launchers, and for the integration of these weapon systems within a Battle Management Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence (BMC4I) framework. The SHIELD PO delivers materiel solutions that provide US Forces and Allies the ability to detect and defeat Cruise Missiles (CM), Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), Rotary and Fixed Wing Threats, and Rockets, Artillery and Mortars (RAM) in order to win our Nation’s Wars. This includes full line authority over the life cycle management, planning, direction, execution, and control of tasks (and designated associated resources) involved in the development, qualification, test, integration, production, sustainment, fielding, distribution (to U.S. forces and/or Foreign Military Sales (FMS) customers) and logistics support (including provision of documentation, training, and support items) of the worldwide inventory of assigned materiel.

To accomplish this mission, the SHIELD PO executes full life-cycle management of assigned Army, joint and international programs, providing world-class support to the Warfighter. The SHIELD portfolio includes:

·        The Maneuver-Short Range Air Defense (M-SHORAD) Product Office

·        The Indirect Fire Protection Capability Increment 2 (IFPC Inc 2) Product Office

·        The Lower Tier Interceptors and Launchers Product Office

·        The Land-based Phalanx Weapon System (LPWS) Product Office

The PO pursues and leverages opportunities to enhance systems’ operational effectiveness while reducing the total cost of ownership. The SHIELD PO also exercises operational control over personnel assigned to other Army agencies and commands that provide collocated support to the SHIELD PO in the Security, Systems Engineering and Integration, Logistics, Test and Evaluation (T&E), Quality and Reliability Engineering, and Configuration Management and Production disciplines.

Search Track Acquire Radiate Eliminate (STARE)

The Search Track Acquire Radiate Eliminate (STARE) Project Office manages Army air defense artillery and field artillery sensors, equipping and sustaining the global warfighter. STARE supports and improves fielded sensors by developing capabilities to address current and future threats, as well as integrating within the Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System (IBCS) network.

STARE provides life cycle management for the following products:

  • Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor (LTAMDS)
  • Multi-Mission Surveillance Systems (M2S2) -- AN/TPQ-53, AN/TPQ-50, AN/TPQ-36/37 radars
