Lockheed Martin Delivers Final, Historic F-22 Raptor To U.S. Air Force

MARIETTA, Ga., May 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] leadership delivered today the 195th and last F-22 Raptor to U.S. Air Force leadership in a ceremony at the Lockheed Martin Aeronautics site here. With this delivery, the U.S. Air Force now possesses the world’s only 5th generation stealth fighter aircraft fleet in the world.

“There is no longer any nation that wishes us ill or any adversary who wishes us harm that has any doubt that their actions will have consequences – that they will be held to account and that our response will be undeterred,” said Robert J. Stevens, Lockheed Martin’s chairman and CEO. “The very existence of this airplane – your airplane – has altered the strategic landscape forever.”

A host of distinguished officials participated in this monumental event, including senior leaders from Lockheed Martin and the U.S. Air Force; local, state and national elected officials; and Lockheed Martin employees who helped build the F-22 Raptor fleet.

This final Raptor joins a U.S. Air Force fleet of 187 operational F-22s and will join other F-22s in the Air Force’s 3rd Wing at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska. In all, Lockheed Martin delivered 195 F-22s to the Air Force beginning in 1997, with eight Raptors used as test aircraft.

F-22s are assigned to seven U.S. bases. Flight testing takes place at Edwards AFB, Calif. Operational tactics development continues at Nellis AFB, Nev. Pilot training takes place at Tyndall AFB, Fla. Operational F-22 aircraft are assigned to Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Va.; Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska; Holloman AFB, N. M.; and Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii.

The F-22 Raptor is the world’s only operational 5th generation fighter, making it an unmatched national security asset. The Raptor is designed to defeat denied-access threats, enable joint and coalition operations in contested areas, and globally promote deterrence and security. For more information on the F-22, visit www.lockheedmartin.com/products/f22/.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs about 123,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The Corporation’s net sales for 2011 were $46.5 billion.

Lockheed Martin Unveils Updated Code One Magazine Website

Lockheed Martin Unveils Updated Code One Magazine Website
June 29, 2010

FORT WORTH, Texas, - Code One, the award-winning airpower magazine published by Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT), has officially unveiled its newly updated and expanded website (http://www.codeonemagazine.com/). The new website, like the print magazine, reports on all Lockheed Martin Aeronautics aircraft, air vehicles and systems.

"The new Code One website reflects the rapidly expanding digital communications world," said Joe LaMarca, vice president of communications for Lockheed Martin Aeronautics . "The new site allows for much more timely and in-depth coverage of the entire family of Lockheed Martin aircraft. Most importantly, the site continues the magazine's focus on the activities of the customer communities that fly our aircraft."

The new site features current and archived articles from Code One magazine; updated news about Lockheed Martin aircraft and the units flying them; historic photographs; photo galleries; as well as current and archived videos, including the first flights of many legacy and current Lockheed Martin aircraft. The new site will also regularly highlight recent ground and flight test accomplishments on the F-35 Lightning II fighter program. Additional types of aircraft-related content will be added as the site matures. The new Code One website takes full advantage of new media and search engines, such as Digg(R), Facebook(R) and Twitter(R).

Code One originated as a product support publication for F-111 and F-16 aircraft in 1986. Through the next 25 years, the scope of the magazine expanded beyond tactical aircraft to include air mobility, maritime patrol and reconnaissance, and cutting-edge air vehicles. The magazine debuted its Internet site in 1996. The site has been revised several times since then, but none to the extent of this most recent update.

Lockheed Martin and Aegisound Honored With Defense Department’s Nunn-Perry Award

Lockheed Martin and Aegisound Honored With Defense Department's Nunn-Perry Award
March 11, 2010 12:39:00 PM

WASHINGTON, -- An industry Mentor-Protege agreement between Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) and Aegisound LLC of Blacksburg, Va., was recognized with a Department of Defense Nunn-Perry Award in ceremonies yesterday evening.

Under the agreement, Lockheed Martin has assisted Aegisound in developing its capabilities as a supplier of advanced hearing-protection devices for personnel working in harsh noise environments.Hearing-protection devices from Aegisound are planned for use on aircraft carrier decks during Navy operations with the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter aircraft and will help preserve the hearing of service men and women.

The prestigious Nunn-Perry Award, named in honor of former Sen. Sam Nunn and former Secretary of Defense William Perry, was first awarded in 1995 to recognize outstanding Mentor-Protege teams formed under the auspices of the DoD Mentor-Protege program.

Aegisound is a small Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) business. Lockheed Martin Aeronautics is providing knowledge, experience and best manufacturing practices to help Aegisound develop its production capabilities and business infrastructure to serve defense, aerospace and commercial markets. Working through the U.S. Navy Mentor-Protege office over a three-year period, the two companies combined efforts to increase Aegisound's production and sales capacity.

"This Mentor-Protege project is a win-win-win proposition. First and most importantly, this technology provides effective hearing protection for the crews that launch airplanes from U.S. Navy carriers. Aegisound is gaining a state of the art, highly efficient manufacturing capability that will support planned growth as the demand for their products increases. The technology enables Lockheed Martin to meet important F-35 program requirements," said Gary Bailey, vice president of Supply Chain Management for Lockheed Martin Aeronautics. "We will continue work toward developing Aegisound into a world-class supplier, capable of producing the most sophisticated hearing protection available today," Bailey said.

Aegisound's hearing-protection and communications devices, developed under the F-35 Lightning II program, employ state-of-the-art active noise-canceling technology. The new hearing protectors replace existing hearing-protection devices that are based on 50-year-old technology. The new devices, providing both protection and intelligible communications in extreme noise environments, are worn on deck by aircraft carrier personnel conducting catapult launches and maintenance activities.

As part of the Mentor-Protege initiative, Lockheed Martin teamed with the Morehouse College Entrepreneurship Center to provide training, mentoring and consultancy to Aegisound. Morehouse College is an Historically Black College/University (HBCU) in Atlanta, Ga.

"The mentoring assistance provided by Lockheed Martin and Morehouse College Entrepreneurship Center has proven to be invaluable to Aegisound in supporting our continued growth and mission to serve and protect those who serve and protect us," said Michael Vaudrey, president and CEO of Aegisound.

Lockheed Martin Delivers First Production F-35 Electro-Optical Targeting System — Press Release

Lockheed Martin Delivers First Production F-35 Electro-Optical Targeting System

ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 30 /PRNewswire/ — Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) has marked successful entry into low rate initial production on the F-35 Lightning II Electro-Optical Targeting System (EOTS). The first production units have been delivered to Lockheed Martin Aeronautics in Fort Worth, TX, for integration onto the aircraft.

Embedded into the F-35’s fuselage with an innovative faceted sapphire window, the low-drag, stealthy EOTS is the world’s first and only sensor combining forward-looking infrared and infrared search and track functionality. The F-35 EOTS will provide Lightning II pilots with significant air-to-air and air-to-ground situational awareness in a single compact and completely passive sensor.

“Our team looks forward to meeting its commitment to provide a superior targeting system to F-35 pilots around the world as we gear up to produce more than 3,000 units,” said Rich Hinkle, program director of F-35 Lightning II EOTS at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. “This delivery marks a pivotal achievement for the EOTS as we transition from a system design and development program to a production program.”

The F-35 EOTS production is ramping up to produce up to 200 units a year. “The outlook for the F-35 program is very strong,” Hinkle said. “Our success in supporting the program is vital to the F-35’s mission to provide dominant airpower across the full air-to-air, air-to-ground mission spectrum.”

The latest generation infrared sensor technology, the F-35 EOTS builds upon the success of Lockheed Martin’s Sniper® Advanced Targeting Pod to provide high-resolution imagery, automatic target tracking, infrared-search-and-track, laser designation and range finding, as well as laser spot tracking–all at greatly increased standoff ranges. Modular components allow the F-35 EOTS to be maintained on the flight line for true two-level maintenance.
