The book opens with a foreword by Marillyn A. Hewson, Chairman, President and CEO:

If innovation is our company’s beating heart, purpose is our soul. We’re at our best when we’re working to make the world a better place through technology.

Talk to Lockheed Martin employees, and they’ll tell you they’re not just building airplanes, radars and missile defense systems — they’re helping U.S. and allied forces strengthen global security. They’re not just writing software — they’re helping governments deliver essential services to millions of citizens. They’re not just designing satellites and rockets — they’re expanding the boundaries of scientific discovery.

Throughout these pages, you’ll find hundreds of examples of innovation with purpose. From pioneering a new industry at the dawn of aviation, to powering the arsenal of democracy in World War II, to delivering the cutting-edge technology that helped win the Cold War, we’re proud to have made an enduring contribution to history. Looking ahead to our next 100 years, we’re honored to do our part to shape the future.

This book is dedicated to the hundreds of thousands of men and women who have been a part of Lockheed Martin and its heritage companies over the past century. You know firsthand just how soul-satisfying innovation with purpose can be. These stories are a tribute to the role you’ve played in writing the amazing story of our history and creating the unlimited horizons of our future.
