Engineering a Better Tomorrow
Helping the future arrive is what we do. We solve the great problems of our times. We create the innovative technologies that define eras. While no one knows what's going to change the world next, we're probably already working on it.
From global security, to commercial markets, to scientific discovery,
GLOBAL SECURITYOur job is to protect what matters most. That's why we continuously push the boundaries of what's possible to create technologies that are anything but traditional.
THE FUTURE OF DEFENSE IS ALREADY HERE.
Advanced tactical fighter aircraft are a foundation of military power. The F-16 Fighting Falcon has continually reset the standard for multirole aircraft for years, thanks to a constant stream of technological updates and innovations. And now the F-35 Lightning II, the most sophisticated multirole fighter ever to fly, brings an entirely new set of interoperable capabilities to forces around the world. After all, air superiority isn’t a luxury, it's a necessity.
READY FOR ANYTHING, SINCE THAT’S WHAT THE NEXT MISSION COULD BE.
These days, nobody knows what their next mission might be. That's why Lockheed Martin teamed with Marinette Marine Corporation, a Fincantieri company, and Gibbs & Cox to build the Littoral Combat Ship. LCS combines the toughness of a traditional frigate with the speed, versatility and affordability today’s environment demands. Plus, with the flexibility to easily upgrade equipment and mission systems, LCS is designed for whatever the future may bring.
THE HIGHEST STAKES DEMAND THE HIGHEST DEGREE OF PRECISION.
When it comes to air and missile defense, missing the target is not an option. That's why Lockheed Martin builds integrated systems with extensive capabilities across the boost and ascent, midcourse and terminal phases, along with sensors, architecture and targets. One such system, Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD), boasts a 100% success rate in testing dating back to design completion.
COMMERCIAL MARKETSWe're engineering a better tomorrow by bringing forward innovations that help make life safer, cleaner and more sustainable.
THE POWER PLANT OF THE FUTURE COVERS 71% OF THE PLANET.
In a world where the demand for energy rises by the day, we’re exploring better ways to generate power. The oceans that cover our planet may hold the key. We’re working to harness the forces of the tides for clean, reliable, renewable electricity. Because while resources may be limited, the power of human ingenuity to create a better energy future is not.
NOBODY KNOWS WHAT WE'LL NEED TOMORROW, BUT WE DO KNOW HOW IT WILL GET THERE.
From oil and gas exploration to heavy industry and freight forwarding, when you need to get your hands dirty, there’s only one solution. It’s the new LM-100J, the commercial version of the world’s most proven cargo transport. With the power, versatility and ruggedness to bring anything anywhere, the LM-100J’s unmatched flexibility allows it to do all the jobs that once required a specialized and varied fleet.
TODAY THERE’S NOTHING MORE VALUABLE THAN INFORMATION. AND THE ABILITY TO SECURE IT.
Attacks against information systems are relentless, and they’re not going away. But by taking an intelligence-driven approach to cyber security today, we’re building resilient networks that can defend against threats that haven’t been imagined, yet. It’s just one way we’re creating solutions for a more secure future.
SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERYWe pursue knowledge wherever we find it.
From space exploration, to fusion power, to nanotechnology, we’re helping the future arrive.
WHAT’S IMPOSSIBLE TODAY WON’T BE TOMORROW.
Many people wonder “what if?” But at Lockheed Martin, we don’t stop there. We obsess. We study. We ponder. We push the state of the art in fields like quantum computing, nanotechnology, material science and countless others. And, as a result, we create innovations that define eras. We don’t know what’s going to change the world next. But we’re probably already working on it.
SOMEDAY IS CLOSER THAN YOU THINK.
We believe that most of what’s impossible today soon won’t be. Because we routinely take on missions of mind-boggling complexity where we don’t just draw on the latest discoveries, we make them, in fields like nanotechnology, quantum computing, material science and aerospace. And together with our customers, we’re creating a whole new world of possibilities.
WE’RE READY TO TAKE THE NEXT GIANT LEAP.
Landing on the Moon was one of humanity’s finest hours. Yet, still greater achievements lie ahead. Launching in December, Orion will pave the way to carry astronauts on bold missions to the far side of the Moon, to near-Earth asteroids and eventually to Mars—missions that will excite the imagination and advance the frontiers of science. The future is arriving. And Orion is leading the way.
