Maria Demaree

TYSONS CORNER, VA, April 22, 2019 — Maria Demaree, vice president and general manager of the mission solutions segment within Lockheed Martin‘s (NYSE: LMT) space sector, highlighted the function of the company’s new SmartSat technology to reprogram satellites in case of issues or changing requirements, ExecutiveBiz reported April 7.

C4ISRNet reported April 5 that the tool, which Lockheed unveiled in March, works to provide flexibility for software-defined satellites or smart sats to be reconfigurable and adapt to new customer or mission requirements, thus avoiding “expensive and time-consuming” alternatives.

Lockheed plans to integrate SmartSat into the Linus and Pony Express nanosatellites.
