The company cut the ribbon for the new lab Wednesday with Doug Graham and Marshall Case, both vice presidents for Lockheed’s space systems company, as hosts of the event.

A seeker, equipped with a cryostat and infrared sensors, works to enable a kill vehicle to target an enemy warhead by transmitting trajectory data to the missile defense's onboard guidance platform.

“A seeker is the on-board eyes for a missile defense interceptor, and it must perform with perfect “˜20/20 vision' in the final moments before interception,“said Graham, VP of missile systems and advanced programs for Lockheed’s space systems company.
