We invest in partnerships with Australia’s research and industry communities to support our local and global supply chains, providing opportunities for technology transfer, innovation, local skilled jobs and sustainable business growth.

Through our Office of Australian Industrial Participation (OAIP) we’re looking for world class solutions in:

  • Defence
  • Non-defence
  • Research & development
  • Support & training

The OAIP is a dedicated team with staff in Australia and the United States who research Australian industry capabilities and match these with identified business opportunities for Australian companies, especially small to medium-sized enterprises, into Lockheed Martin local and global supply chains, including those of its principal partners.

We identify and evaluate business opportunities for Australian firms according to best value benchmarks set against other globally competitive options by providing:

  • specialised market assistance
  • regulatory compliance expertise
  • a range of relevant training

We work with the Centre for Defence Industry Capability (CDIC) and other Commonwealth agencies to address any barriers that may adversely impact Australia's ability to access bidding opportunities.
