Hewlett-Packard Co. and Lockheed Martin Corp. today formed a strategic alliance to purse more government business around the globe.
The two companies have cooperated on individual programs in the past, including about $500 million in contracts over the past three years.
The formal alliance will enable HP and Lockheed Martin to cooperate on technologies, solutions, personnel and product plans, company officials said today at the Military Communications Conference in Monterey, Calif. Initially, the alliance will focus on logistics, intelligence and international opportunities.
Over the past three years, the two have worked together on the FBI's national Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System, the Defense Department's Civilian Personnel Data System, and the Postal Service's Integrated Data System.
HP and Lockheed Martin officials said the alliance should expand over time to include other areas such as homeland security and joint command and control.
