Topics: 

The Aegis Evolution: Outpacing Emerging Threats


Doug Wilhelm, director of International Aegis programs




Technology continues to advance and threats continue to grow at an unprecedented rate. The Aegis Combat System continues to pace the threat by the continuous modernization of the Aegis Integrated Air and Missile Defense Weapon System. First designed to enhance fleet defense against other navies, Aegis has evolved into the premier naval combat system, globally-deployed to counter ballistic missiles and other advanced air and missile threats. Aegis has grown into a truly international enterprise as well, with Australia, Japan, Norway, the Republic of Korea and Spain adopting and adapting it successfully to their own unique needs and ship designs. For more than 40 years, Aegis has led technology advancements and continues to advance these technologies today and into the future.




Flexible International Surface Combatant Designs


Joe North, vice president of Littoral Ships and Systems, Ship and Aviation Systems




As the U.S. Navy prepares to deploy USS Fort Worth, Joe North will provide an update on the status of LCS and discuss the Multi-mission Combat Ship and Surface Combat Ship. With its hull design flexibility and open architecture combat management system, the MCS aligns with many partner navies' preference for multi-mission, fixed combat systems with the flexibility to allocate reconfigurable space for use with modular and unmanned systems.




MH-60R: Meeting Global Missions with Modularity


George Barton, vice president of Business Development, Ship and Aviation Systems




The MH-60R "Romeo" is the most capable and mature Anti-Submarine Anti-Surface Warfare multi-mission helicopter available in the world today. George Barton will discuss recent and upcoming milestones for MH-60R programs around the globe.




Advancing Unmanned Aircraft Applications


George Barton, vice president of Business Development, Ship and Aviation Systems




The demand for unmanned systems has grown in recent years, and Lockheed Martin offers a wide portfolio of aircraft that can adapt to a variety of missions in the defense and commercial sectors. Rapidly, these systems are maturing and becoming more trusted on the front line in both combat and surveillance missions, as well as commercially in law enforcement and agriculture. George Barton will provide an overview and program updates of the Lockheed Martin portfolio of unmanned aircraft.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs approximately 113,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services.
