Seeing Tomorrow Today

Looking upward to the skies, I feel such pride
by Ches S.

I started my Lockheed Martin career in 1968 and retired in 2002 from the Owego facility. I worked as an engineer, engineering manager and program manager and enjoyed our cradle-to-grave facility. We designed, built, tested and fielded our products, and we had direct communication with our customers during all phases of construction. My favorite program was the Light Airborne Multi-Purpose Systems (LAMPS) program. I feel a great sense of pride when the helicopters fly over my house during testing and sell-off. I look up and see the next generation operational, and I am happy to read about the recent foreign sales to Denmark.
