OR­LANDO — Lock­heed Martin has bro­ken ground on a new re­search-and-de­vel­op­ment fa­cil­ity in Or­lando, where the defence gi­ant plans to hire 1,800 peo­ple to work on new weapons sys­tems for the Pen­tagon. Engi­neers at the fa­cil­ity will work to de­velop new weapons sys­tems in­clud­ing the Long Range Stand­off Mis­sile, a plane-launched nu­clear cruise mis­sile. The com­pany is in fierce com­pe­ti­tion with ri­vals like Boe­ing, Raytheon and Northrop Grum­man to cap­ture new defence spend­ing as the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion looks to up­date the U.S. nu­clear arse­nal.
