In 2021 we remained steadfast in our customer-focused mission to revolutionize the future battlespace by engineering advanced networked capabilities.
This year we made progress applying commercial, advanced technologies to accelerate and increase deterrence capabilities for aerospace and defense, and link highly capable national security platforms together.
There’s no better example than our 5G.MILTM solutions.
Our recent collaborations with Radisys, Verizon and Keysight Technologies are significant enablers for furthering the U.S. Department of Defense’s new warfighting concepts and align with Chairman, President and CEO James Taiclet’s vision for the future battlespace.

Through continued acceleration of payments to our supply chain partners, with a focus on small and vulnerable businesses, we reaffirmed our support of the broader defense industrial base amid the continuing effects of COVID-19. Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have accelerated payments to more than 12,800 suppliers, including more than 8,000 small businesses across all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and 49 nations.
