Lockheed Martin Corp. has formed a new business unit, Transportation and Security Solutions, to address growing national priorities for safe, efficient travel and control of borders, the company announced today.
Don Antonucci, previously president of the company's air traffic management unit, has been named president of the enterprise.
Transportation and Security Solutions was established following a realignment of organizations within the company's systems integration business area.
The realignment, involving the former ATM business and the Mission Systems and Systems Integration-Owego units, is intended to improve service delivery, strengthen customer relationships and align capabilities with new business opportunities, the company said.
The new, 2,000-employee TSS business unit encompasses Lockheed Martin's work in airport, physical and border security. TSS also includes civil agency programs involving advanced systems for managing sensitive information, such as Customs modernization and Census Bureau data capture.
"By concentrating software, automation and information management expertise within our new business unit, Lockheed Martin will better help current and future customers address their needs for transportation, security and other systems directly affecting our nation's economy and security," Antonucci said.
TSS brings together Lockheed Martin's solutions for aviation management with its experts in aviation, maritime and physical security. Lockheed Martin's work on the Customs modernization project will fall under the TSS unit.
Lockheed Martin, headquartered in Bethesda, Md., is the largest government systems integrator in the United States, ranked No. 1 for the ninth straight year on Washington Technology's Top 100 list. The company has 125,000 employees, and its 2002 revenue was $26.6 billion.
