Lockheed Bases Mission Systems, Training Unit HQ Near DC Navy Yard

LockheedLogoLockheed Martin‘s new mission systems and training unit, formed through a realignment scheduled to take effect at the start of this year, will be based near the Washington Navy Yard.

The Washington Post reports the new unit will provide systems engineering, electronics and training systems to the U.S. Navy and Air Force, among several customers.

Marjorie Censer writes the company is building up the unit’s portfolio in unmanned systems through its purchases of UAV software developer CDL Systems Ltd., which the company intends to complement with its November buy of Chandler/May and avionics firm Procerus Technologies.

CDL makes commercial off-the-shelf software for use in UAVs and Procerus makes technology for autopilot functions, Censer writes.
