Lockheed Martin is the world’s largest defense contractor. The global security and aerospace company was formed by the 1995 merger of the Lockheed Corporation and Martin Marietta. Lockheed Martin’s operating units are organized into four business areas: aeronautics, missiles and fire control, rotary and mission statements, and space. With approximately 110,000 employees worldwide, the company operates at more than 375 facilities and over 16,000 active suppliers in all 50 states and more than 50 countries worldwide. In 2020, despite the devastating impacts of the coronavirus pandemic, the company remained successful, managing to hire more than 11,000 employees throughout the year. In August 2020, Lockheed Martin and its partners (including Jeff Bezos’s company Blue Origin) submitted to NASA a 40-foot-tall mock-up lander designed to be the next spacecraft to deliver astronauts to the moon.
