Lockheed Martin Collaboration Opportunities

Lockheed Martin has releasing a listing of DoD SBIR 2017.2, STTR 2017.B solicitation topics with identified Lockheed Martin personnel interested in particular SBIR topics. The purpose of this listing is to help connect companies with the appropriate Lockheed Martin technical points of contacts to explore opportunities for partnership and innovation. 

If your firm has interest in a topic, is considering submitting a proposal and would like to seek Lockheed Martin’s support through an endorsement, sponsorship and/or partnership opportunity, please contact the individuals listed next to the appropriate topic as soon as possible to ensure adequate time for letter approvals. Contact information is provided. Please have your SBIR solicitation number included in your correspondences with the point of contacts. 

Please note that the listing includes multiple points of contacts for a given topic. This is primarily due to there being cross interest amongst various Lockheed Martin Business Areas that have different requirements. Therefore, please feel free to contact all the individuals listed for the applicable topic; however, to better coordinate between those who have interests in these topics, we ask that you send one email that contains all of the Point of Contact email addresses, instead of a separate email to each. Please allow ten (10) business days for Lockheed Martin review of your technology.  If no points of contacts are listed, there is no current interest by Lockheed Martin.   

If there are others topics that aren’t listed that may be of interest to Lockheed Martin, please feel free to contact us via email: Do not send proprietary, export controlled, confidential or classified information. I have added your email to our distribution list, so you will continue to receive copies of our topics of interest as they are released.
