Lockheed Martin Forms Silicon Valley Alliance

Lockheed Martin is establishing a Silicon Valley Alliance aimed at helping innovative companies in the region meet the diverse technology needs of the federal government.  The goal is to provide the federal government with greater visibility into innovative technology solutions developed in Silicon Valley, especially software and cyber security solutions.

"Lockheed Martin has played an ultra-high-tech role in the Silicon Valley story since 1956 when we opened our facility in Sunnyvale, adjacent to Moffett Field," said Tory Bruno, Lockheed Martin's president of Strategic and Missile Defense Systems. "The government market catalyzed the initial growth of all high-tech industries in the San Francisco Bay Area. Now, through the Lockheed Martin Silicon Valley Alliance, we can help to reconnect today's companies to that market, which continues to be substantial despite a challenging economy."
