11:00 a.m. -- Littoral Combat Ship… An Affordable Design
Presented by Paul Lemmo, vice president, Business Development, Lockheed Martin MS2
In response to the Navy's single-design acquisition plan for the Littoral Combat Ship program, Lockheed Martin has submitted a proposal with an affordable, low-risk design. Lockheed Martin will highlight the ways in which it is meeting the Navy's need to drive down cost in the areas of sustainment, training, communications and the ship's combat system.
2:00 p.m. – Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion… Renewable, Endless Ocean Power
Presented by Dennis Cooper, OTEC program manager and Dr. Ted Johnson, business development
To help the Navy and the country meet its renewable energy goals, Lockheed Martin and its team members are working to produce an economically viable renewable energy source that exploits the temperature difference between warm surface water and deep cold water. The process is free of global warming emissions and does not require any external fuel source. Lockheed Martin will highlight its design for a large scale "pilot plant" that will serve as the prototype and validate technologies for small to large scale commercial sized Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) power plants.

09:30 a.m. – Media Availability – New Technologies Continue to Make the MH-60R the World's Most Advanced Operational Maritime Helicopter
Captain Dean Peters, MH-60 Program Manager, NAVAIR; George Barton, Lockheed Martin Director Naval Helicopter Programs; Len Wengler, Sikorsky Helicopter VP
The U.S. Navy and industry will be available to discuss technology upgrades for the U.S. Navy's MH-60R, including the Joint Mission Planning System and periscope detection among other topics. Lockheed Martin and Sikorsky recently delivered the 56th mission-ready aircraft to the U.S. Navy and are actively marketing the aircraft internationally.
11:30 a.m. – K-MAX Media Availability-Unmanned Cargo Lift Capability Ready to Deploy
Dan Spoor, Rotary Wing Vice President; Terry Fogarty, KAMAN General Manager UAS Product Group
Team K-MAX is ready to begin modifying K-MAX aircraft for the U.S. Marine Corps' urgent need for unmanned cargo lift rotorcraft. The K-MAX UAS can deliver a larger sling load in a shorter period of time, to more locations, and to higher altitudes than any other rotary wing UAS. To expand its cargo delivery capabilities, Team K-MAX is also flight testing cargo air drops as an alternative delivery mechanism.
2:30 p.m. – Lockheed Martin's Technology Collaboration Center – An Integral Part of Low-Risk CANES Pursuit
Presented by Dan Phelan, Program Manager, TCC-W
In March 2010, the U.S. Navy competitively awarded two initial system design and development contracts for its Consolidated Afloat Networks & Enterprise Services (CANES) program. Lockheed Martin will explain how its Technology Collaboration Center-West (TCC-W) is playing a critical role in the CANES program and how its collaboration with small businesses on emerging leading-edge and Open Architecture (OA) technologies is accelerating warfighting capabilities for the U.S. Navy.
Wednesday, May 5
11:30 a.m. – JAGM: The Right Weapon at the Right Time
Presented by Rick Edwards, vice president for Lockheed Martin Tactical Missiles/Combat Maneuver Systems and John Myers, vice president of Tactical Programs for Aerojet
Currently in competitive technology development, Lockheed Martin's Joint-Air-to-Ground Missile (JAGM) will be the next-generation air-to-ground missile for rotary-wing, fixed-wing and unmanned platforms. The missile will replace the HELLFIRE, Longbow, Airborne TOW and Maverick missiles for the Army, Navy and Marine Corps. This briefing will address recent testing accomplishments, as well as provide a look ahead at milestones that will culminate in a competitive down select later this year.
