Center for Innovation and Security Solutions (CISS)
Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the founding father of the United Arab Emirates, highlighted his vision when he said, “A country’s greatest investment lies in building generations of educated and knowledgeable youth.”
WHO WE ARE
Based in Masdar City, Abu Dhabi, Lockheed Martin launched the Center for Innovation and Security Solutions (CISS) in December 2014. CISS is a state of the art collaboration center to explore innovation, advance security, deliver technological breakthroughs, and prepare the region’s next generation of leaders towards a sustainable future.
As a trusted partner of the United Arab Emirates for nearly 40 years, the CISS facilitates collaboration with the government, industry, and academia. The center is leading the way in successful international collaboration and innovation, leveraging the knowledge and expertise of its most powerful networks to enhance the sustainability of the United Arab Emirates‘ most significant industries.
WHAT WE DO
Committed to developing the United Arab Emirates‘ most valuable asset, its people, the CISS offers elite access to world class technology and training programs that support innovative solutions to the world’s greatest challenges.
TRAINING TOMORROW'S LEADERS
Since it launched, the CISS has implemented a series of training programs for Emirati youth and industry professionals - from the first UAE Cyber Security Challenge to a Modeling and Simulation Training Course, which exposed students at the Masdar Institute of Science and Technology to advanced concepts in scenario and flight simulation. In collaboration with Lockheed Martin’s Lighthouse Center for Innovation in the United States, the CISS held a Joint Flight Simulation training exercise with UAE pilots, allowing pilots to fly campaign scenarios with flight simulators across the global network.
PARTNERING TO INNOVATE AND ACCELERATE THE FUTURE
Lockheed Martin and the UAE Space Agency have partnered to launch a space training program at the CISS to inspire and prepare Emirati space explorers for careers in space.
