Lockheed Martin Establishes Transportation and Security Solutions Business Unit
Realignment Focuses Mission-Critical System Expertise for Transportation, Security and Other Civil Agency Customers
ROCKVILLE, MD, June 11th, 2003 -- Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] announced today the formation of the Transportation and Security Solutions (TSS) business unit to address growing national priorities for safe and efficient travel and control of the nation's borders.
Don Antonucci, formerly president of Lockheed Martin's Air Traffic Management (ATM) business unit, has been named president of the new business enterprise, established following a recent realignment of organizations within the Corporation's Systems Integration Business Area. The realignment - involving the former ATM business and Lockheed Martin's Mission Systems and Systems Integration-Owego businesses - is designed to improve service delivery, strengthen customer relationships and align capabilities with new business opportunities.
The new 2,000-person TSS business unit encompasses Lockheed Martin's expertise and ongoing work in airport, physical and border security. TSS also includes civil agency efforts involving advanced systems for managing sensitive information, such as Customs modernization and Census data capture.
"Focusing this highly specialized talent within a single organization will enhance our responsiveness to customers and enable us to offer optimal solutions to evolving high-priority requirements," Antonucci said. "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."
TSS brings together an impressive program portfolio and performance record. It is a world leader in advanced automated solutions for aviation management, with an unrivaled record of on-schedule, on-budget performance for the Federal Aviation Administration and international airspace management providers. TSS also includes the Corporation's experts in aviation, maritime and physical security-the team that successfully reconfigured passenger screening security checkpoints at the nation's airports and helped deploy 54,000 federal screeners for the Transportation Security Administration ahead of the congressionally-mandated deadline. The organization is part of the e-Customs Partnership modernizing the vital commercial processing system for the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection. For the U.S. and U.K. governments, TSS has developed Census data capture systems that delivered unprecedented accuracy. It is also modernizing the command, control, communications and information infrastructure for the London Metropolitan Police in the U.K.
"Our reputation is founded on the on-time, on-budget delivery of systems that address our customers' mission critical requirements, and we intend to carry this tradition forward as we serve both current and new customers," Antonucci said. "In particular, we will draw on the strength of our new organization and the vast technology portfolio of the Lockheed Martin Corporation to help our nation respond to its existing and emerging homeland security challenges."
Lockheed Martin Transportation and Security Solutions specializes in advanced aviation management, security and other mission-critical information technology solutions. It employs approximately 2,000 people at major facilities in Rockville and Gaithersburg, MD, Atlantic City, NJ, Eagan, MN, and Southampton, England. TSS is a business unit of Lockheed Martin's Systems Integration Business Area.
