At the dawn of a new space age, Lockheed Martin is a pioneer, partner, innovator, and builder\. Our amazing men and women are on a mission to make a difference in the world and every single day we use our unique skills, talents, and experiences to design and build solutions to some of the world’s hardest engineering problems\.

Defending against modern day missile threats requires constant collaboration and innovation\.

It’s why we’re investing in disruptive technology like directed energy, space\-based capabilities, and solid state\-radar\. To create layers of defense that help keep us all safe\.

Shooting a missile down with a missile was once a concept only dreamed up in science fiction novels\. We’ve made it scientific fact\! So, what does it take to spot an enemy missile launch, identify its intended target, calculate its exact trajectory, launch an interceptor and guide it to destroy the threat in mid\-air?
