The Lockheed Martin NOVA award program was created in 1995 after the merger of Lockheed Corporation and Martin Marietta, to recognize individuals and teams who have made outstanding contributions to the Corporation’s mission and business objectives. The name NOVA, refers to a bright star, and was chosen because the star motif played an important role in the identities of both companies prior to their merger just over a decade ago.
