Lockheed Martin has teamed with AeroVironment, a California-based manufacturer of small tactical UAVs, including the Puma, Raven, Wasp and Shrike, as well as the Global Observer weather observation and border surveillance UAV.

“Using our expertise in systems integration and AeroVironment’s knowledge of unmanned aircraft solutions, we will together look for opportunities to develop innovative technologies that create value for new and existing customers,” said Paul Lemmo, Lockheed Martin's senior vice president for corporate strategy and business development.

“Numerous customers are seeking persistent solutions for wide area applications, such as border surveillance and communications, that are much more affordable than those available previously," said Roy Minson, AeroVironment senior vice president and general manager of its Unmanned Aircraft Systems business unit. "Lockheed Martin’s broad systems integration expertise gives us the opportunity to work together and develop innovative, end-to-end atmospheric satellite systems built around Global Observer that deliver breakthrough capabilities to customers.”
