Video: ADvanced CyberSecurity

Our latest generation cyber systems are setting the standard for the future: applying revolutionary technology development to delivery affordable solutions.

See how our cybersecurity threat intelligence speeds response and helps governments and private enterprise mitigate security risks.





Our Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) solutions are simplifying the complex—turning data into knowledge. And knowledge into action.

Cyber Solutions
We are global leaders delivering full spectrum cyber capabilities -- supporting the offensive and defensive efforts of our defense and intelligence community customers.

Directed Energy
For 40 years, Lockheed Martin has researched, designed, developed, and captured electromagnetic energy and elevated its power to create innovative Directed Energy solutions.

Electronic Warfare
Electronic Warfare (EW) represents the ability to use the electromagnetic spectrum—signals such as radio, infrared or radar—to sense, protect, and communicate.

Logistics and Sustainment
We focus on a blend of engineering, production, supply chain and sustainment to support the lifecycle of our products, to deliver affordable solutions.

Maritime Systems
As technology grows and adversaries become more sophisticated, naval dominance, missile defense and nuclear deterrence must evolve to meet these new threats.

Rotary Wing
From the flight of the world's first practical helicopter in 1939, Sikorsky has remained the industry leader through its commitment to innovation, excellence and safety.

Radar and Sensors
Our radar and electro-optical/infrared sensor systems provide advanced precision targeting, navigation, threat detection and next generation intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities.

Traditional approaches focus on delivering training tools and devices. Lockheed Martin takes a more innovative approach: developing a training system that provides the shortest path to learning.

Unmanned Systems
Unmanned systems are changing the way militaries operate and protect forces, the way first responders fight fires and how researchers explore the ocean terrains.
