EVEN AS THE MISSION CHANGES.
As technology grows and adversaries become more sophisticated, naval dominance, missile defense and nuclear deterrence must evolve to meet these new threats. To effectively defend our nation and allies, Lockheed Martin is providing the U.S. Navy and international navies with the solutions they need to maintain freedom of the seas and deter aggression.
Meeting Challenging Missions
Our maritime systems and technologies enable the U.S. Navy and international navies to accomplish a diverse set of missions in the air, on the sea’s surface, beneath the surface, in space and on land.
The F-35C Lightning II will bring enhanced 5th Generation capabilities to the Naval Aviators of today and tomorrow. Its stealth and sensor fusion capabilities are a force multiplier, greatly increasing lethality and situational awareness for the entire Carrier Strike Group.
To ensure the U.S. Navy’s maritime dominance, we provide the surface Navy with a broad portfolio of capabilities including ships, aircraft, manned and unmanned systems, projectiles and sensors.
With an increased emphasis on the world’s undersea operational environment, our sonar technologies and combat system integration are vital to undersea mission success.
We are providing the next generation of platforms and systems that will deliver supplies, transport troops and manage logistics for deployed forces in remote areas.
As navies around the world create an integrated network of defense systems to meet national security goals, we're partnering with local industry to ensure technology and skills transfer, collaboration and investment.

Air, Sea and UnderSea Systems
Whether stopping a ballistic missile threat, or providing humanitarian aid after a natural disaster, our Navy service members are there to respond. Our systems and platforms transport them safely and help them to do their jobs.
In the future, every ship is a threat to adversary forces. Every asset has the ability to shoot…to react…to project power.
Because the calculus of sea control – and sea denial – is changing.
Today, our adversaries can shoot farther, with more precision and can do more damage than ever. The U.S. Navy is examining its force structure and operating concepts to stay ahead of these threats. With the proliferation of long-range missiles and the increasingly congested and contested information environment, warfighters operate in an uncertain battlespace.
