We Helped Modernize the United States Navy

I was proud to work at Lockheed
by Donald B.

I worked at Lockheed Electronics Company. One of our biggest products was an all-digital air track radar and gunfire control system. It was one of the first produced and was evaluated on the USS Norton Sound, out of Oxnard, California. This system directed a 5-inch gun against ground and air targets. Lockheed produced 20 of these systems for the United States Navy. Gun systems were soon replaced by missile systems around the world.
