Lockheed Expands Space Systems Facility in Newtown, PA

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.
