Lockheed outfits Army medical research lab in Maryland

Lockheed Martin Corp. will outfit a medical research laboratory for the Army under a six-year, $66 million contract.

The award from the Army Engineering and Support Center in Huntsville, Ala., calls on the contractor to stand up the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases Replacement Laboratory at Fort Detrick, Md., according to a Jan. 31 Lockheed announcement.

Lockheed Martin’s Global Training and Logistics business will help transition essential personnel and equipment to the new facility, which includes nearly one million-square-feet of new space comprised of multiple labs, administrative and headquarters offices.

“Standing up a research environment is a complex undertaking requiring expertise in medical outfitting and transition,” June Shrewsbury, vice president of technical services at Lockheed Martin’s Global Training and Logistics business, said in the announcement.

In addition to the new laboratory at Fort Detrick, Lockheed Martin’s expertise in health-care outfitting and transition services includes the Defense Department’s new Medical Education & Training Campus at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas, the world’s largest enlisted military medical training campus.

In a separate initiative, Lockheed Martin will complete the outfitting and transition activities for the new San Antonio Military Medical Center in the spring of 2012.

Lockheed Martin, of Bethesda, Md., ranks No. 1 on Washington Technology’s 2011 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
