Defence Turkey: What is your role at Lockheed Martin?

I am the vice president of Business Development for Integrated Warfare Systems and Sensors for Lockheed Martin’s Mission Systems and Training business. Our division specializes in naval combat systems and sea-based missile Defence systems, and our flagship product to meet these challenges is the Aegis Weapon System. We also focus a great deal of our efforts in developing sensor solutions for all branches of the armed forces and the governments of 30 nations. We produce world-class naval radars, including the SPY-1 radar for Aegis. We develop ground-based surveillance radars such as the FPS-117, counter-battery radars, and space surveillance radars. And, within our group, we develop Electronic Warfare sensors as well.
