San Antonio, Texas. 29 JUNE 2018. Lockheed Martin  plans to expand its cyber operations at Port San Antonio’s Project Tech complex during a ceremony at the facility. The company is the first tenant at Project Tech—a new development in the heart of the campus specifically tailored to support the growth of the region’s cybersecurity and other advanced technology sectors.

Lockheed Martin’s Cyber Solutions operations will be housed within more than 15,000 square feet of workspace beginning in early 2019. The local team comprises high technology positions including systems engineers, software developers and cyber architects. They will primarily work on development and testing of full spectrum cyber tools and platforms such as Henosis™, the Lockheed Martin prototype for the U.S. Air Force’s Unified Platform competition. During the next five years, the team expects to grow to more than 100 professionals.

“We are inspired by our customers’ missions and seek to partner with them to make the world a safer place,” said Deon Viergutz, Lockheed Martin vice president of Cyber Solutions. “By increasing our investment in the area of cyberspace mission support, we are better-positioned to support the growing needs of organizations on or near the Port, such as the 24th and 25th Air Forces and the National Security Agency.”

Port Interim President and CEO Jim Perschbach stated, “we are extraordinarily proud to welcome Lockheed Martin as the first customer in our new Project Tech community.” He added, “Lockheed Martin’s presence and growth plans send an unequivocal message that San Antonio’s cyber expertise is a global standard-bearer with big plans ahead. We look forward to serving as a true strategic partner to the team. In collaboration with our region’s strong and committed cybersecurity partners, we’re ensuring our new customer’s enduring success and growth as they deliver world-class services.”
