Lockheed Blasts Satellite Out of Sky; Recieves Honor

The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) recognized the team of Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) engineers who played a significant role in the  successful destruction of an errant United States satellite in 2008, preventing it from an uncontrolled and unpredictable reentry and potential crash to Earth.

“The success of this effort was a direct result of the enduring partnership between our engineers and our customers, ” said Orlando Carvalho, president of Lockheed Martin’s Mission Systems and Sensors business unit. “The tremendous adaptability of the Aegis Weapon System, especially our SPY-1D radar, allowed us to perform flawlessly in the execution of this new mission.”
