Working together for a quarter of a century, Lockheed Martin and Carnegie Mellon University have come together to open a new cyber lab near the school’s campus.

The government contractor and the university will conduct joint research and development into concepts and innovative technologies for the future of cyber operations.

The lab will be located within the same vicinity of Lockheed’s additional labs, including the NexGen Cyber Innovation and Technology Center. Carnegie has one of its own cyber labs on campus called the CyLab, which is one of the largest university-based cybersecurity education and research centers in the U.S.

Lockheed’s Senior VP and CTO Dr. Ray O. Johnson praised this new venture with CMU.

“Collaboration with best-in-class universities like Carnegie Mellon provides the latest concepts that enable tomorrow’s cybersecurity solutions,” he said.

According to Carnegie Mellon President Jared L. Cohon, the opening of the cyber lab will help Pittsburgh’s local economy.
“It also serves as another example of how Carnegie Mellon’s talented faculty and students attract leading global businesses to the Pittsburgh region, helping to drive innovation and economic growth,” he said.

Lockheed is the largest employer of Carnegie grads with more than 250 CMU alumni working for the company and its subsidiaries.
