Lockheed Martin has broken ground on two new facilities at its Space Systems Company operations in Newtown, Pennsylvania, to support spacecraft programs for government and commercial customers. New facilities include a 15, 000-square-foot multi-purpose conference center to facilitate large-scale meetings like design reviews, demonstration initiatives and customer events, and will have space to accommodate up to 250 people. Also, a 17, 000-square-foot addition will be built at the west end of the facility’s Product Team Building (PTB), expanding Lockheed Martin’s satellite manufacturing capability. The addition will house a near-field antenna range, a new passive inter-modulation (PIM) chamber, and a new antenna assembly clean room. In addition, product holding and fixture preparation areas are planned.
