SAN DIEGO , Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] has been selected by the Office of Naval Research to develop net-centric data distribution, fusion, and visualization technologies to expedite the decision-making process for the Navy's Maritime Headquarters with Maritime Operations Center. As part of a government-led team, Lockheed Martin will provide the transformational technologies to support the globally netted set of Maritime Operations Centers. This three-year effort is valued at approximately $12M.

"We are proud to support the Office of Naval Research. As an expert in enterprise data fusion and SOA technologies, we can provide the Navy with the ability to collect, filter, and share operational data in real-time," said Elton Schroeder , vice president of C4ISR Systems for Lockheed Martin's Mission & Combat Support Solutions. "In short, we can provide them with a widely available, accurate operational picture, when they need it, where they need it."

Lockheed Martin will develop a dynamic data layer, adaptive collaboration assistants, and role relevant visualization services within a service-oriented architecture for the Maritime Operations Center's systems to facilitate networked data sharing. These technologies will facilitate data access, sharing, and collaboration across all instances of the MOC. Along with the standardization of the MOC staff, processes, and tools the software services provided by Lockheed Martin will enable the establishment of virtual and forward deployed Maritime Operations Centers.
