Grand Opening: Lockheed Martin Exhibit Centers North and South

When visiting the Lockheed Martin Exhibit Centers North and South, it becomes evident that going to space is just the beginning! It’s what you do when you get there that matters. Lockheed Martin builds satellites and spacecraft that do amazing things in space for government and commercial customers. The satellites give earlier warning of severe weather, connect troops on the battlefield and deliver GPS directions to a billion people worldwide. Connecting people. Advancing discovery. And protecting what matters most.
