Existing Suppliers

The Aerospace and Defense Global Trading Exchange


Lockheed Martin has partnered with Exostar to provide greater security and a simplified process for non-Lockheed Martin suppliers, partners and customers needing access to Lockheed Martin external-facing systems such as Lockheed Martin Procure to Pay (LMP2P) and OneAero.

Exostar helps conquer the complexity and mitigate the risk associated with sharing information with external partners. To gain access to these systems a company profile and specific user account(s) must first be established with Exostar using their Managed Access Gateway (MAG). MAG then handles authentication of established users and vendor profile management. Together, these services provide controlled access to the Lockheed Martin systems via a single sign-on process. Suppliers will access this portal to retrieve their purchase order documents, participate in bids/reverse auctions and other business activities. For more information you may contact your Lockheed Martin procurement representative or Exostar by clicking on this link: MyExostar
