Advanced Materials


The key to better understanding our world is to better understand the materials that compose it. For centuries, mankind has sought to learn about the nature of materials and how they can be used, changed or improved. Curiosity then led scientists to begin creating materials that were stronger, more durable or lighter weight than those occurring in the natural world.

Today, at Lockheed Martin, we are pioneering the use of advanced materials to manufacture new, innovative products. We can achieve breakthrough performance and lower lifecycle cost by designing and manufacturing next-generation products and systems using advanced polymers, nanomaterials, advanced composites and light-weight modern metals.

Advanced materials are paving the way to new markets, stimulating human curiosity and sowing the seeds of innovation to help us solve some of humanity‚Äôs greatest challenges.
