For more than 50 years, Lockheed Martin has been a strategic partner of the Bundeswehr and the German aerospace and defense industry. An advocate for the development of an integrated transatlantic defense market, Lockheed Martin works with in-country industrial partners to support a range of German global security needs. 

From a partnership with ThyssenKrupp Maritime Systems and STN ATLAS Elektronik to upgrade German frigates to a cooperation with EADS to produce radar for the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) to a joint venture with EADS to produce the COBRA radar in Germany, Lockheed Martin remains committed to its international partners.

Other major programs include:

Medium Extended Air Defense System (MEADS)- Lockheed Martin is a key partner with German and Italian industry on MEADS- a mobile air and missile defense system designed to replace Patriot systems in the United States, Germany and Italy.

P-3 Orion- Since purchasing eight P-3s from the Netherlands, Germany has used the aircraft for a variety of missions including maritime patrol, reconnaissance and anti-submarine warfare.

Patriot Advanced Capability (PAC-3) – Germany selected the PAC-3 Missile as the primary interceptor for the multi-national Medium Extended Air Defense System.

FPS-117- Lockheed Martin supplies collision avoidance systems, such as the FPS-117 three-dimensional air search radar, to German air traffic authorities.

Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS) – This program is a NATO cooperative to provide standardized weapons for Germany and other allies.




German Weather Service (DWD) recently installed Lockheed Martin WindTracer® Doppler lidar systems at the Frankfurt and Munich airports to provide concise information on wind shear which can adversely affect aircraft on the approach or take-off path.
