Investing in Canada's Future
The Lockheed Martin IMPACT Centre is an interactive space showcasing innovative solutions for our customers, industry stakeholders and community partners.
Fuelling Innovation in Canadian Industry
Located within Lockheed Martin Canada’s newest facility in Ottawa, the Lockheed Martin IMPACT Centre is the company’s latest initiative to invest in state-of-the-art facilities and infrastructure across Canada to accelerate technology development and promote a thriving culture of innovation.
The Lockheed Martin IMPACT Centre will complement the company’s world-leading Maritime Advanced Training and Test Site (MATTS) in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. It will leverage the advanced engineering skills and technology honed at the MATTS in the development of Canada’s modernized Halifax Class Combat Systems and associated trainers.
Mentoring our Next Generation of High Tech Professionals
Lockheed Martin Canada’s future success depends on a constant supply of highly trained and capable technical talent.
The Lockheed Martin IMPACT Centre is part of our commitment to STEM education, helping to educate and inspire tomorrow’s scientists, engineers and mathematicians. In addition to serving as a demonstration and collaboration area with customers and industry, the Lockheed Martin IMPACT Centre is a venue to meet with students and community partners and explore how to work together to advance STEM education.
Growing Canadian Industry and Capability for Major Exports
As part of Canada's Defence Procurement Strategy and the Industrial and Technological Benefit policy, Lockheed Martin Canada’s partnerships with industrial suppliers will flow through the Lockheed Martin IMPACT Centre.
With a particular emphasis on small to medium companies, partnerships at the Centre will promote the growth of small Canadian businesses, advance Canadian research, support sustainability, and enhance Canada’s capability for major exports in the defence and technology sectors.
Supporting Canadian Research and Creativity
The Lockheed Martin IMPACT Centre will act as a hub for Lockheed Martin Canada’s research and development activity, seeking to strengthen relationships with Canadian universities and academia.
