For years Lockheed Martin has been active on the international market providing a vast range of solutions for every customer’s needs. However, a year ago, it launched Lockheed Martin International with offices in London, UK and in Virginia. This decision to invest has been taken so as to more effectively address its global strategy, which involves the building of solid footprint, that is local offices, on a number of countries. A decision that will enhance its market penetration capabilities.

Further to its business organisation, LM focuses on its ability to invest in new products in two ways. The first being the spiral development, which involves the development of its existing products, offering their upgraded versions. This involves the plan to offer a better version of the combat proven Javelin missile with an extended range and maybe with more flight profiles or new warheads or an uncooled sensor.

The second includes the integration of the current systems on new platforms, such as the Javelin missiles on the Piranha V vehicle of the Norwegian Army, the fitting of the Hellfire and DAGR launcher aboard the JLTV vehicle, which has recently been showcased at the US to a potential Middle East customer for use on an armoured vehicle, or even the transformation of the SMSS robotic vehicle into a firefighting solution.
