AeroVironment Inc., a leader in unmanned aircraft system solutions, and the Lockheed Martin Corporation, one of the world’s largest aerospace companies and a leading systems integrator, recently announced an agreement to jointly pursue opportunities in unmanned aircraft system (UAS) development.
“At Lockheed Martin, we look forward to partnering with AeroVironment to potentially develop integrated solutions for the unmanned systems market,” said Paul Lemmo, Lockheed Martin Senior Vice President, corporate strategy and business development.
