New Facility Spotlights Innovation at Lockheed Martin

Lockheed Martin has opened a new Innovation Center at its Missiles and Fire Control (MFC) facility in Orlando. The space measures 6,500 square feet and gives employees a place to develop creative solutions to complex problems. The objective is for the company to create new patents and win additional multimillion-dollar contracts.

“Innovation is our ‘day job’ — it is core to who we are and everything we do,” said Frank St. John, executive vice president at Lockheed Martin MFC. “This facility gives employees the means to bring ideas from our unlimited imaginations to life.” The center contains five specialized labs, a next-generation videoconference capability, and an interactive lobby.

It is equipped with technology for virtual reality, robotics, computer-simulated environments and 3-D printing. It is the second of its kind. The Innovation Center in Dallas opened in 2017.
