Lockheed Martin Establishes Rotary and Mission Systems Business Area

New name reflects the expanded portfolio of former Mission Systems and Training business



Lockheed Martin, August 04, 2016 - WASHINGTON, D.C. – Lockheed Martin has renamed its Mission Systems and Training business area, establishing Rotary and Mission Systems to reflect the recent growth of the business following the acquisition of Sikorsky and realignment of other parts of the company.

The Rotary and Mission Systems (RMS) portfolio features more than 1,000 programs, including helicopters, integrated air and missile defense, littoral warfare, undersea warfare, radar, electronic warfare, cyber solutions, C4ISR, and training and logistics systems. The business area supports the U.S. Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Missile Defense Agency, Marine Corps and Navy, as well as intelligence, civil, commercial and international military customers.

“The new name captures the breadth of our expanded portfolio and reflects the skills and expertise of the 18,000 new employees who have joined our business,” said Dale Bennett, executive vice president of Lockheed Martin Rotary and Mission Systems. “While the name has changed, we have retained our passion for innovation and our commitment to supporting the missions of our customers around the world.”

In November 2015, Lockheed Martin finalized the acquisition of Sikorsky Aircraft, aligning it under the former Mission Systems and Training (MST) business area as “Sikorsky, A Lockheed Martin Company.” Since then, the division also added new capabilities from Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Solutions (IS&GS) and Missiles and Fire Control (MFC) Technical Services, including government cyber security solutions, and mission support services. The new name more accurately reflects this expanded portfolio. The name change will be effective Sept. 5, 2016, and does not reflect any change in the organization or mission of RMS.

Rotary and Mission Systems includes five lines of business:

- C4ISR & Undersea Systems
- Integrated Warfare Systems and Sensors
- Ship and Aviation Systems
- Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin Company
- Training and Logistics Solutions

Headquartered in Washington, D.C., the division employs more than 35,000, including approximately 10 percent outside the U.S. to include Australia, Canada, Mexico, New Zealand, Poland, United Kingdom and other countries.

About Lockheed Martin: Headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) is a global security and aerospace company that employs approximately 125,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services.
