Lockheed Martin Canada, headquartered in Ottawa, is the Canadian-based arm of Lockheed Martin Corporation, a global security and aerospace company employing 100,000 people worldwide. For nearly 80 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: Rotary & Mission Systems, Aeronautics, Space, 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 1,000 employees living and working in Ottawa, Montreal, Halifax, Calgary and Victoria, we also have employees located within customer locations across the country.
Across all programs, we manage over 1400 contracts with companies of all sizes and from all regions. Since 2008, Lockheed Martin’s business operations, investments in R&D and contracts in Canada have generated $3.8 million in GDP, led to 36,521 full time jobs in Canada, provided 170 co-op student opportunities, generated $2.5 billion in wages and exported more than $2 billion in products and services.
Rotary & Mission Systems (RMS): Rotary & Mission Systems has been the Combat System Integrator for all major, surface platforms for the Royal Canadian Navy for 25+ years. Our recent success as the Combat System Integrator on the modernization of the Halifax-class frigates opened the doors for our role on the Arctic Offshore Patrol Ships (AOPS). Our expertise extends deep into the in-service support, training and simulation domains. Derived from work dating back to the 1980s with the original builds of the Halifax-class frigates, our Combat Management System, now known as CMS 330, is now an integral component of our offering as part of our Canadian Surface Combatant proposed solution. Recently, our CMS 330 has attracted global attention by winning contracts to upgrade ships from the Chilean Navy and Royal New Zealand Navy. We are currently active in Combat System Integration pursuits around the world.
Through Sikorsky, acquired by Lockheed Martin 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 is finalizing testing and evaluation of the mission and weapon systems on its way to operational status in the summer of 2018 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.
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 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 CC-130J Hercules, 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 was selected by 11 allies to meet their defence needs for the next 40 years.
One of the greatest Aeronautics commercial success stories has been the performance of Lockheed Martin’s Commercial Engine Solutions (LMCES) facility in Montreal. After opening five years ago, the business has secured several exclusive contracts with US and international based airlines and military customers, grew their workforce by more than 122 percent, and continued to remain focused on offering cutting edge, value-driven solutions to their customers.
Space: Lockheed Martin is one of the world’s most innovative companies producing solutions for space. Since Satcom-1 unleashed a media revolution in 1975, we launched more than 100 commercial satellites that serve a host of missions. We’ve built more interplanetary spacecraft than any company. Lockheed Martin Space has built and launched over 100 weather and environmental spacecraft for civil and military agencies. We are proud to deliver the most advanced protected military satellite communication capabilities to the Canada on the Protected MILSATCOM. We’ve delivered five Mobile User Objective System satellites which will support tactical narrowband satellite communications in the high north.
Missiles and Fire Controls: The RCAF CF-18 fighter fleet is equipped with Missiles and Fire Control’s most modern targeting system called Sniper. These targeting pods enable delivery of precision weapons and conduct reconnaissance. Lockheed Martin’s Energy portfolio is also delivered through this business area, which is looking to position several comprehensive solutions for Canadian customers in the fields of energy storage, microgrid and demand response solutions, energy efficiency, nuclear systems, and bioenergy generation. Specifically our Energy Storage solutions cover the range of duration and scale through both our lithium and flow battery technologies, making the grid more efficient, cost-effective, clean, stable, secure and responsive. They are turnkey, flexible, compact, and reliable, providing improved power quality and reliability to power producers across the globe.
