Lockheed Martin Opens Global Vision Center at San Diego SPAWAR Facility
SAN DIEGO, 06-FEB-04 -- Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] today opened a new Global Vision Center at the U.S. Navy's Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) in San Diego.
The Global Vision Center will be used to develop, test and demonstrate advanced Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) technology. It will be part of Lockheed Martin's Global Vision Network, a worldwide system of shared assets and integrated facilities. Through this network, Lockheed Martin will be able to connect resources and solutions in a real-time, network-centric environment, permitting demonstrations and collaboration between Lockheed Martin, the U.S. Navy and industry partners across several U.S. sites and locations throughout the world.
We are proud to expand our industry collaboration with the U.S. Navy, said Fred Moosally, president of Lockheed Martin Maritime Systems & Sensors. This center provides a tremendous capability to take C4ISR technology to new levels. Working closely with the Navy, the solutions that come from the center will directly support our armed forces in the ever more complex combat environment.
The Global Vision Center is strategically located in San Diego, where it is readily accessible to fleet units and waterfront commands, as well as co-located with SPAWAR headquarters and the Program Executive Officer (PEO) C4I and Space. Today's grand opening ceremony included a demonstration highlighting Lockheed Martin's ability to assist the warfighter throughout the process, from detecting a threat to release of weapons.
