Lockheed, U-Md. announce partnership

Lockheed Martin is committing at least $1 million a year to a new three-year partnership with the University of Maryland to boost research and joint business opportunities.

Officials say the partnership announced Saturday is expected to grow.

The agreement calls for creating Centers of Collaboration between Lockheed and the university. The centers will focus initially on sustainment, climate change and cyber-security. The partnership also will boost research and development work.

They will pursue joint business opportunities to provide products and services to federal agencies and other parties.

Bethesda-based Lockheed partners with the university to research applications of high-power laser beams.
