Lockheed Seeks Unmanned Maritime Opportunities Through Ocean Aero Investment - top government contractors - best government contracting eventLockheed Martin‘s venture capital arm has invested in Ocean Aero as both companies aim to seek opportunities to expand their autonomous maritime capabilities.

The strategic investment from Lockheed Martin Ventures seeks to help the firms continue to demonstrate their capability to configure teams of autonomous platforms for complex missions, Lockheed said Friday.

Chris Moran, executive director and general manager of Lockheed Martin Ventures, said the investment in Ocean Aero would help Lockheed meet clients' maritime requirements through the former's autonomous ocean systems and other technology platforms designed for various missions.

Ocean Aero's Submaran S10 is an unmanned surface and underwater vessel that works to collect data and perform ocean observation operations.

The maritime drone is powered by wind and solar energy and works to operate at a depth of 660 feet to carry out command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions.

Lockheed is Ocean Aero's second investor and collaborated with the San Diego-based unmanned maritime systems maker at the 2016 Annual Naval Technology Exercise in Rhode Island to demonstrate multi-domain unmanned platforms.
