The Lockheed Martin Rotary and Mission Systems (RMS) segment will have more than 1,000 programs, including helicopters, integrated air and missile defense, littoral warfare, undersea warfare, radar, electronic warfare, cyber solutions, C4ISR, and training and logistics systems.
The business area will support the U.S. Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Missile Defense Agency, Marine Corps and Navy, as well as intelligence, civil, commercial and international military customers.
In November 2015 Lockheed Martin finished its acquisition of Sikorsky Aircraft in Stratford, Conn., and put it in the company's Mission Systems and Training (MST) segment as Sikorsky, A Lockheed Martin Company.
Lockheed Martin Rotary and Mission Systems will have five lines of business C4ISR & Undersea Systems; Integrated Warfare Systems and Sensors; Ship and Aviation Systems; Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin Company; and Training and Logistics Solutions.
Previous to that, Lockheed Martin established its Mission Systems & Sensors segment in 2010 by realigning two prior standalone Electronic Systems businesses -- the former Maritime Systems & Sensors, and the Systems Integration – Owego segments.
Before 2010 Lockheed Martin established the company's Maritime Systems & Sensors segment in 2003; its Electronics and Surveillance Systems and Lockheed Martin Systems Integration – Owego in 1998; and the Lockheed Martin Federal Systems – Owego segment in 1996.
Much of Lockheed Martin's radar and electronics expertise came from the former GE Aerospace segment, which Martin Marietta acquired from General Electric in 1993.
To be headquartered in Washington, D.C., Lockheed Martin Rotary and Mission Systems when it stands up next month will employ more than 35,000, including 10 percent outside the U.S. in Australia, Canada, Mexico, New Zealand, Poland, United Kingdom, and other countries.
