Lockheed Martin Corp., whose aeronautics segment is based in Fort Worth, has been named the Large Business Prime Contractor of the Year by NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston.
The award recognizes sustained excellence in meeting or exceeding small-business requirements during the nine years the company has held a contract to prepare and process cargo for the International Space Station.
The past year has seen the contract exceed five of seven small business utilization goals by 20 percent or more.
"Lockheed Martin values our relationships with small businesses, recognizing that working together provides NASA with innovative and diverse solutions," said Rick Hieb, vice president of exploration and mission support for Lockheed Martin's Information Systems and Global Solutions, commenting in a news release.
"Together, we've supported human spaceflight at Johnson Space Center for more than 50 years, and we look forward to continuing that relationship," Hieb said.
Lockheed Martin also was named the Johnson Space Center Large Prime Contractor of the Year in 2008 for subcontracting initiatives on the aircraft simulation program.
Lockheed Martin Corp., based in Bethesda, Md., is a global security and aerospace company employing about 118,000 people worldwide. It researches, designs, builds and develops advanced technology systems, products, and services. More information is available at www.lockheedmartin.com.
