Lockheed Martin has completed its initiative to place its central hub for targets and countermeasures in Huntsville, Ala., home to program offices of both the company and the Missile Defense Agency.
The company said it moved 100 positions and an integrated system development laboratory from Denver to Huntsville, where Intelligent Decisions announced in April its plans to open a research and development office for space and missile defense activities.
“In addition to the targets and countermeasures positions, we also have openings in Huntsville in virtually every engineering discipline and support function across our various programs,” said Tim Lingo, senior manager of human resources for missile defense systems.
Remaining open positions include software, systems, electrical and mechanical engineers, as well as specialists in finance, manufacturing and procurement.
The transition started in 2007, when the company moved its targets and countermeasures program office from Arlington, Va.
Close to 250 employees work on the targets and countermeasures program in Huntsville and 60 are based in Courtland, Ala., the company’s target missile production facility.
