P-3 Operators gather at Conference

ATLANTA, Oct. 28, 2013 - Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] is co-hosting the 2013 P-3 International Operators Support Conference (IOSC) here, October 28-31.

This year’s co-hosts are Blue Aerospace and Kellstrom Defense Aerospace, Inc., both Lockheed Martin authorized P-3 distributors supporting the P-3 and CP-140. 

The purpose of the conference is to identify affordable solutions for continued sustainment. This year's theme, "Operationally Proven, Sustainable into the Future," provides insight into the P-3’s global leadership in maritime patrol and reconnaissance, homeland security, hurricane reconnaissance, anti-piracy operations, humanitarian relief, search and rescue, intelligence gathering, antisubmarine warfare and data gathering after natural disasters.
Since 1988, the annual P 3 International Operators Support Conference (IOSC) has been the forum where P 3/CP 140 operators come together and share common concerns and successes.  This year’s conference will introduce a new collaborative sustainment initiative called Sustainment Through Aligned Requirements (STAR).   STAR is an innovative solution designed to reduce total ownership costs.
