SOLON, Ohio – February 28, 2023 – HDT Global (HDT) announced today its previous selection by prime contractor Lockheed Martin to support the Next Generation Interceptor (NGI) development effort for the Missile Defense Agency (MDA). Work has already commenced on HDT’s contract to provide custom missile transportation and emplacement trailers for this program.

“HDT is excited and honored to be selected as a part of the Lockheed Martin team,” stated Juan A. Navarro, HDT Global President and CEO. “The NGI program enhances our nation’s security and acts as a deterrent to adversaries, and we could not be more pleased to add our expertise to this initiative.” 

The Next Generation Interceptor (NGI) is slated to be a part of the current Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) Weapon System which protects the homeland against intercontinental ballistic missile threats from rogue nations. HDT Global and its team in Cincinnati, Ohio have been tapped to execute the engineering, development, manufacture, proof loading and delivery of the Lockheed Martin NGI transportation system.

“Our proficiency in missile transport systems makes us well-suited to support the NGI program,” added Greg Miller, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Platform Systems. “By leveraging our experience gained through such programs as the Transporter Erector Replacement Program (TERP), the Ground Based Strategic Deterrent (GBSD) Sentinel program as well as the Common Transporter Erector System (CTES), we are confident in our ability to support Lockheed Martin and the MDA as we face the evolving threats to our nation.”
