Lockheed Martin Introduces its Multi-Mission Combatant for Navies Worldwide
Tom Cosgrove, business development for the Multi-Mission Combatant
Lockheed Martin’s Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) is an ideal candidate for navies worldwide – reconfigurable, flexible and fully interoperable. Tom Cosgrove will provide an overview of the ship you know – the U.S. LCS Freedom variant – and introduce you to the one you don’t – the international Multi-Mission Combatant. Dominance in shallow water is crucial to numerous navies to protect national shorelines and vital shipping lanes, and a ship as streamlined and efficient as the Multi-Mission Combatant fits the bill.

After more than four decades and nine full technological baselines, Aegis is still the most advanced global missile defense system in the world. Lockheed Martin’s Doug Wilhelm talks about what’s new, and how Lockheed Martin keeps it that way, with Aegis.
Uncommon Commonality: Team Seahawk Goes Global
George Barton, vice president of business development

George Barton will be available to talk about Team Seahawk, and its interoperable, operational, capable namesakes.
