Lockheed Martin is expected to unveil a significantly evolved version of its SkyKeeper ground-based air-defence (GBAD) battle management system at the 2019 Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) exhibition in London in September.

An early iteration of SkyKeeper has, since December 2014, been fielded as the tactical battle management command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence (BMC4I) component of the Land Environment Air Picture Provision (LEAPP) capability operated by the British Army. This will eventually be superseded as part of the UK's Future Divisional GBAD programme, which is in its Assessment Phase.

Lockheed Martin has subsequently embarked on a progressive upgrade and enhancement of the system.
