Sometimes the key to going farther than ever before is not having to go at all. Lockheed Martin’s unmanned systems take on the riskiest of jobs—exploring dangerous territory, extending mission reach and visibility—all while keeping humans out of harm’s way.
HUMAN & MACHINE TEAMS
Lockheed Martin combines its systems integration experience with its 40-year legacy in ground vehicle development to lead the industry in several autonomous vehicle technologies. We integrate active protection and robotic technologies onto military vehicles to create safer convoy operations. And we have developed proven, innovative autonomous ground vehicles capable of supporting military missions and commercial applications such as site security, firefighting and even unmanned shuttle systems.
From large to small sizes, high to low altitudes, Lockheed Martin offers a wide-range of solutions for our customers’ varied missions. From finding and fighting fires, to providing life-saving aerial surveillance to keep soldiers safe, to carrying critical cargo in dangerous environments, our unmanned aerial systems (UAS) have proven their performance time and time again.
Lockheed Martin is developing undersea unmanned systems to help navigate harsh maritime environments. With a rich heritage of advanced sonar processing for the U.S. Navy submarine force, we’re applying the latest in sensor and autonomy technologies to keep ships and sailors out of danger. We’re also improving the effectiveness and affordability of commercial offshore oil and gas efforts--offering a quicker and safer way to conduct undersea surveys and inspections.
VIDEO: The Lockheed Martin and Kaman unmanned K-MAX helicopter successfully lifted and dropped more than 24,000 pounds of water to extinguish a fire in a demonstration on Nov. 6. During the demonstration, the Indago quad rotor identified hot spots and provided data to an operator who directed unmanned K-MAX to conduct water drops. The demonstration signifies how an unmanned team can aid in traditionally manned operations.
