Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control has won two of the prestigious Department of Defense (DoD) Nunn-Perry Awards for its outstanding performance on the DoD Mentor-Protege program, which partners established contractors with small disadvantaged businesses. In Dallas, Missiles and Fire Control’s small disadvantaged business partner, Tecnico Corporation of Chesapeake, Virginia, worked with the company to produce composite midsection housing tubes for the Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) Missile, the new missile being produced by Missiles and Fire Control – Dallas for the U.S. Army’s Patriot air defense system. Lockheed Martin provided a full-time project manager, who split time between Tecnico and Dallas, providing composites manufacturing technology support to Tecnico. Because of its involvement and commitment to the program, Tecnico has expanded into the manufacture of hyperbaric chambers, which has led to the company providing hyperbaric chambers under contract to the U.S. Navy.
