Missile Warning & Defense

Centauri develops solutions to address the emerging threat of intercontinental hypersonic and ballistic missiles, including nuclear threats in contested environments.

    We support 24×7 capabilities and operations to sustain warfighter operations, minimizing disruption of ongoing development and activities to face rapidly advancing threats. We support total system performance for Research and Development Systems Engineering and Integration as a leading technology developer. As threats evolve, we are ready to deliver advanced missile defense solutions for you.

    Our Approach

     

    Centauri provides mission commanders a capability to engage and destroy short to intermediate-range missile threats and long-range threats in battle space to protect the U.S. Homeland. We are a prime contractor for Critical Defense Technologies through Other Transactional Authorities (OTAs) providing solutions for Hypersonics, Directed Energy and more. We provide support to Prime Contractors for DoD, Army, Air Force (AF), Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) and the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) contracts providing integrated development, engineering, sustainment and operation. Our proven expertise in guidance, navigation and control, cybersecurity, kill vehicles, operations, and mission assurance ensure program success and solid capabilities for the warfighter. Our Engineering Prototype and Innovation Center, a 2,100 square-foot, in-house composite fabrication facility, is a critical element in the company’s rapid design and prototype fabrication of mission-unique components for prime contractor and government customers. 

    Centauri is designing, analyzing, characterizing and fabricating novel prototype composite rocket motors, insulators, composite hydro-burst test bottles, and material samples. We support Missile Defense Tactical Operations, continuous operations including cybersecurity, mission assurance and electrical power anomaly resolution.

    We provide mission assurance expertise including survivability, reliability, availability, maintainability and test, including radiation hardening and resilient techniques. Our niche expertise in Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM) includes obsolescence, Parts, Materials and Process (PMP) including MDA PMP Mission Assurance Procedures (PMAP) and cybersecurity of weapon systems, missile warning sensors, and interceptors incorporating resilient techniques. 

    We provide Missile Warning and Defense leadership, expertise, technology and solutions for the Department of Defense through FAR based contracts and Other Transactional Authorities.
