Lockheed Martin Chairman, President and CEO Speaks on 21st Century Security at Reagan National Defense Forum
Lockheed Martin President and CEO Jim Taiclet attended the Reagan National Defense Forum and spoke on a panel titled, “Laboratories of Learning: Successes in Pioneering the Future of Warfare.”
During the panel, Taiclet discussed how Lockheed Martin is leveraging its position as the largest aerospace and defense company in the world to be a pathfinder for 21st Century Security (21CS) and advanced digital technologies that ensure our government and industry partners have the innovative solutions and operational capabilities to remain ahead of ready.
He highlighted many key initiatives from across the Lockheed Martin’s business, including three priorities:
- Applying the concept of anti-fragility to increase industry’s ability to quickly ramp production of key systems in an ever-evolving global security landscape;
- Aggressively accelerating the adoption and insertion of 21st century digital technologies through a standards-based, modular open architecture approach that allows the U.S., international allies, defense primes, suppliers, and start-ups alike to work from the same framework allowing greater interoperability across all of our armed services; and
- Increasing collaboration with allies and partners, including the establishment of key production and sustainment facilities in our most trusted allied nations globally, closer to potential theaters of operation of U.S. forces.
As Lockheed Martin’s customers face an increasingly threatening, complex and digitized geopolitical environment, Lockheed Martin stands ready to meet the demand by delivering platforms and solutions networked to provide unparalleled impact.
