Lockheed Martin Aeronautics

The Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company is a subsidiary of Lockheed Martin Company, headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas. In addition, there are branches in Marietta, Georgia and Palmdale, California. In Palmdale, the Lockheed Advanced Development Projects Unit ( ADP) is - unofficially known as the Skunk Works - home. Various projects are being built in Florida, Mississippi, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

The Group relies on the former, very large corporations Lockheed and Martin Marietta. With the merger of the two companies in 1995, then the current Lockheed Martin Aeronautics was established with most of the developments of Lockheed dates. That includes the C-130, C -5 and C-141 and F- 2, F -16 (purchased from General Dynamics ), F -117, F -22 and F- 35th

But the most important project is the F -35 ( JSF) which up to now the company earned $ 200 billion and 3,000 quite secure export orders. The F -22 air superiority fighter is also an important part of Lockheed ( and partner Boeing).
