Serco, Inmarsat, CGI UK and Lockheed Martin UK form ‘Athena’ to develop additional UK space capabilities, win new business and boost the British economy
Space is an important and valuable domain that has changed from a safe environment to one that is congested and threatened. A growing number of satellite system owners and operators need new capabilities to protect their assets and manage their interests in Space. Lockheed Martin’s iSpace software addresses this need by providing command and control and battle management capabilities for customers in all arenas - defense, international, commercial, and civil - that operate in the space domain.
Lockheed Martin is currently developing its technology solution for Space Fence, a program that will revamp the way the U.S. Air Force identifies and tracks objects in space. Learn more
In 2018, the U.S. Air Force is expected to begin launching the most powerful GPS satellites ever designed and built – GPS III. Today, GPS III satellites are in full production at Lockheed Martin’s GPS III Processing Facility near Denver, a $128 million, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, itself designed in a virtual reality environment to maximize satellite production effectiveness and efficiency.

From launch to landing, Orion will be the safest spaceship in the world, returning humans to deep space and bringing them home safely. We’re pushing the envelope for crew safety – all in the name pioneering something never done before: sending people to Mars.
After a long journey, the InSight spacecraft will arrive at the Red Planet on November 26, 2018. Learn about the punishing entry, descent and landing sequence and what it takes to safely land on Mars.
At no other time in history have we had the technology, the know-how, and the public enthusiasm to get humans to Mars. Orion is NASA’s spaceship that will take humans into deep space, but it needs to be a part of a larger system to go to Mars. Lockheed Martin’s concept is called Mars Base Camp and it’s our idea of how to send humanity’s first crewed mission to Mars in about a decade. The Mars Base Camp orbiting outpost could give scientists/astronauts the ability to operate rovers and drones on the surface in real time – helping us better understand the Red Planet and answer fundamental questions: Where did we come from? Where are we going? Are we alone?
We believe that our future success and ability to engineer a better tomorrow depends on a constant supply of highly trained, highly capable technical talent. Read More
Lockheed Martin donated its award-winning Mars Experience Bus to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum on Oct. 19, 2018. The donation provides an opportunity to engage students, parents, educators and other key stakeholders in STEM-education. Visit the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center to ride the Mars Bus
