Counting the Years

Our history is truly impressive
by Larry N.

In the early 1990s, General Electric (founded in 1892, 120 years ago) purchased the RCA Corporation (founded in 1919, 93 years ago and originally a split-off of GE). GE Aerospace, the combination of GE Space and RCA Aero-Astro, was sold in the mid-1990s to Martin Marietta, which subsequently merged with Lockheed Martin. As such, the Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company (SSC), in effect, is celebrating its 120th birthday this year.
