Lockheed to study unmanned systems

Lockheed Martin Corp. has won a contract from the Army to assist with the development and improvement of unmanned aerial systems.

Under the contract, Lockheed Martin of Bethesda, Md., will develop and analyze concepts that will improve the unmanned systems components of the Air Maneuver Battle Laboratory at Fort Rucker, Ala.

The purpose of the work is to enable the Army to explore concepts of teaming manned and unmanned aerial platform system capabilities on the digitized battlefield. The contract is worth about $1 million.

The mission of the Air Maneuver Battle Lab is to explore advanced concepts and technology through experimentation and technology demonstrations. The company supports this mission through the development, analysis and virtual simulation of potential Army aviation modernization concepts.

Lockheed Martin ranks No. 1 on Washington Technology's 2007 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
