Lockheed Martin launches redesigned F-35 website
FORT WORTH, Texas, May 13, 2013 – Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] announced the redesign of www.F35.com, the official website of the F-35 Lightning II. The new design features enhanced functionality and compatibility with a variety of mobile devices while providing users the most up-to-date information on the F-35 programme.
“The new design stemmed from our desire to provide a site that makes it easy to get the latest news about the F-35 programme,” said Joe LaMarca, vice president communications, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics. “We recognise the tremendous role our international and industrial partners play on this programme, and want to make sure they have an avenue to stay connected. Our audience expects transparency, and we’ll use this website to deliver it.”
Key features of the updated www.F35.com include:
- Localised, translated information about partner and foreign military sales countries
- Access to F-35 photos and videos
- News of the latest milestones and events with an RSS feed for notification of new info
- A responsive design to optimise mobile or tablet browsing
The website also serves as hub for the F-35’s social media presence and offers the public the opportunity to ask questions to F-35 test pilots.
