Lockheed Martin has launched a new program that seeks to encourage researchers, startups and companies to propose new technologies designed to address space-related challenges.

The company said Thursday it published technical specifications about payload accommodation data for its LM 2100 satellite, LM 400 satellite and two LM 50 nanosatellite variants through the Open Space initiative to provide partnership opportunities for space technologists.

“Our goal with Lockheed Martin Open Space is twofold: first, to help more companies and innovators do amazing things in space, and second, to create new avenues for collaboration so we can move faster to tackle our customers’ most pressing challenges,” said Rick Ambrose, executive vice president of Lockheed's space business.

Ambrose, a 2018 Wash100 recipient, added the project also aims to provide other firms an opportunity to integrate their technology platforms with Lockheed's satellites in addition to launch slots.

Lockheed will accept concepts through May 11 and a team of technical professionals will assess each submitted concept, offer feedback and discuss opportunities.
