Production Operations is known for innovation. Team members have the opportunity each day to contribute to multiple missions that strengthen the legacy of Lockheed Martin Space. Employees get to participate in programs that include creating the satellites that everyone’s cell phone accesses for GPS, building vessels that will take the first woman to the moon and the first people to Mars.
