Lockheed Martin Canada, headquartered in Ottawa, is the Canadian-based arm of Lockheed Martin Corporation, a global security and aerospace company employing 98,000 people worldwide. For over 78 years, we have been Canada’s trusted defence partner specializing in the development, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. Today, Lockheed Martin Canada has grown into a highly diversified global enterprise that is fully integrated within our parent company’s four core business areas: Aeronautics, Rotary & Missions Systems, Space Systems, and Missiles and Fire Controls.
We are a global leader in systems integration, software development and large scale program management, and we are Canada’s premier supplier of electronic defence and surveillance systems. We serve a diverse customer base ranging from the Department of National Defence, to local and provincial governments, Indigenous and remote communities, as well as Defence and Commercial industries located in Canada and abroad.
With more than 950 employees living and working in Ottawa, Montreal, Halifax, Calgary and Victoria, we also have employees located within customer locations across the country. Since 1983, we have delivered over $6 billion in Industrial Benefits to Canada. Across all programs, we have managed more than 1400 contracts with Canadian companies of all sizes located across nine provinces. We also have an eye to the future by supporting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education, funding innovative research programs at Canadian universities, offering important training experiences to members of Canada’s Indigenous community, and providing more than 170 co-op students with the opportunity to work on some of Canada’s most advanced engineering projects .
Aeronautics: For more than 100 years, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics has been designing, building and sustaining the finest military aircraft in the world. Its relationship with Canada stretches back to World War II when it supplied the Royal Canadian Air Force with “Hudson” aircraft that were used to hunt enemy submarines, to save lives through search and rescue, and to transport cargo.
Since it first entered service in 1960, Lockheed Martin’s C-130 Hercules has served as a reliable workhorse for the RCAF to carry out combat operations and bring desperately needed humanitarian assistance to remote regions. Today, the torch has been passed to our newest model, the CC-130J Super Hercules, which continues this legacy of improving lives across Canada and around the world.
Over time, Canada has become a valued partner in the development of new technologies.
Since becoming one of nine global partner nations to the F-35 program in 2001, more than 110 Canadian companies have contributed
to the development and production of the F-35. Canadian components are on every F-35 produced with Canadian industry awarded over a billion dollars in industrial work to date. The F-35 is combat-ready with the US Air Force and United States Marine Corps and has been selected by 11 allies to meet their defence needs for the next 40 years.
One of the biggest Aeronautics success stories has been the performance of Lockheed Martin’s Commercial Engine Solutions (LMCES) facility in Montreal. After opening four years ago with a handful of employees and an empty production floor, the business has secured two exclusive contracts with US-based airlines, grew their workforce by more than 122 percent, and continued to remain focused on offering cutting edge, value-driven solutions to their customers.
Last year marked a milestone for Hybrid Enterprises, the exclusive reseller of Lockheed Martin’s Hybrid Airship LMH-1, as a letter of intent was signed by a hybrid air service provider with a Quebec-based mining company to transport ore concentrate, supplies and personnel. Developed and built by Lockheed Martin, the LMH-1 is well suited to meet the transportation needs of Canada’s remote and northern communities, avoiding the need of land transportation infrastructure that has a negative impact on wildlife habitat.
Rotary & Mission Systems (RMS): Formerly known as Missions Systems and Training, Rotary & Mission Systems within Canada is responsible for the integration of the Combat Management System of the recently modernized HALIFAX- class frigates and new Arctic Offshore Patrol Ships (AOPS), training and simulation, and many other programs in support of the Royal Canadian Navy . Derived from work dating back to the 1980s with the original builds of the HALIFAX Class, our Combat Management System, known as CMS 330, is now an integral component in the successful HALIFAX Class Modernization program and a core solution for Canada’s new Arctic Offshore Patrol Ships as part of Canada’s National Shipbuilding Strategy. Recently, our CMS 330 has attracted global attention by winning contracts to upgrade ships from the Chilean Navy and Royal New Zealand Navy. In 2016, we became the only Canadian company to pre-qualify as a combat systems integrator for the Canadian Surface Combatant program.
Through Sikorsky, which was acquired in 2015, we have a strong commercial and military helicopter business. More than 40 S-76 and S-92 helicopters provide safe and reliable transportation for offshore drilling crews, business leaders and critical-care medical patients. The CH-148 Cyclone continues through testing and evaluation cycles on its way progressing towards operationalization as Canada’s maritime helicopter.
Lockheed Martin CDL Systems, based in Calgary, specializes in the development and licensing of vehicle control station software for unmanned systems, specifically the Indago quadcopter.
Space Systems: Lockheed Martin has emerged as one of the world’s most innovative companies producing solutions for space. Since Satcom-1 unleashed a media revolution in 1975, we have launched more than 100 commercial satellites that serve a host of missions. We also deliver ground and information systems to track and optimize space technologies. One of our latest technologies the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft that is on a seven-year journey to map and bring back a sample from the near-Earth asteroid Bennu. Through the Canadian Space Agency, Canada is a valuable partner in this cutting-edge scientific research project.
Supporting Our Community: In 2017, Lockheed Martin Canada was once again proudly recognized as a Top Employer in the National Capital Region and a Top 100 contributor to Research and Development in Canada. We are also a proud sponsor of Canada’s leading STEM outreach organization, Actua, as well as sponsoring the national Canada 150 Cubes in Space competition, the only program in the world that provides youth with a free opportunity to design and compete to launch experiments into space. As a strong supporter of the men and women of the Canadian Armed Forces, we proudly support causes valued by the military and veterans community including the Support our Troops Fund through the Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services and the Military EmploymentTransition (MET) network headed by Canada Company. As well, we are proud to sponsor the 2017 Invictus Games and a military related Habitat for Humanity build.
