Next Generation Capabilities

The space economy is evolving, and the need for human advancement and technological innovation is greater than ever. Lockheed Martin is at the forefront of outer space development by partnering with government and commercial customers to create breakthrough technologies that bring us closer to discovering more of space. We’re designing, building and testing lunar and deep space exploration capabilities, including NASA’s Orion spacecraft, and creating early-warning weather and climate observation satellites, like the GOES-R series.

Back home on Earth, defending the U.S. and its allies from adversarial threats in any domain starts with space – the ultimate high ground. Lockheed Martin uses cutting-edge technologies to build capabilities that comprise layered defense systems, from missile defense to directed energy and hypersonic capabilities. Our customers leverage data as a strategic asset, enabling 21st Century Security through advanced communications, data transport and GPS satellites. By partnering with Lockheed Martin, our customers can make decisions with a high degree of precision to protect what matters most – deterring and, if necessary, defeating the threats of today and tomorrow.
