Lockheed Starts Silicon Valley Tech Alliance; Tory Bruno Comments

LockheedLogoLockheed Martin has launched a new collaboration initiative to work with technology companies based in Silicon Valley on bringing their offerings to the federal government marketplace.

The Lockheed Martin Silicon Valley Alliance will aim to show the federal government new technologies developed in Silicon Valley such as software and cybersecurity offerings, Lockheed said Thursday.

Companies participating in the alliance will also gain access to government customers such as the Defense Department and NASA, according to the company.

Tory Bruno, president of strategic and missile defense systems, said the company first entered Silicon Valley in 1956 by opening its Sunnyvale, Calif. facility right next to Moffett Field.

“We can help to reconnect today’s companies to that market, which continues to be substantial despite a challenging economy,” Bruno added.

Lockheed says it seeks technologies for its offerings from the cloud computing, biometrics, information management, modeling and simulation, precision pointing, energy management and storage, optics, electro-optics and nanotechnology segments.
