United Arab Emirates
Lockheed Martin is proud to partner with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on a variety of programs and capabilities. Whether its air and missile defense or systems integration or tactical aircraft, Lockheed Martin offers the most advanced capabilities to meet the UAE’s most challenging global security needs.
In addition to delivering programs and capabilities, Lockheed Martin also strives to better the communities in which we live and work. We feel it’s important to support local industry and our local communities.
In 2011, Lockheed Martin joined the Advanced Military Maintenance Repair and Overhaul Centre (AMMROC) joint venture to support the maintenance of Emirati military aircraft.
In addition, in October 2011 Lockheed Martin hosted an Industry Collaboration Forum to look for new areas to collaborate with local Emirati businesses.
Lockheed Martin supports STEM education in the UAE. As part of a continuing partnership, Lockheed Martin and Khalifa University hosted an Innovation Summit in December 2012 to encourage interest and collaboration in the field of engineering.
Lockheed Martin and Khalifa University are also collaborating on big data analytics research and development needed for the discovery of complex, evolving activities with many components in streams of social network data.
