F-22 Raptor and C-130 Hercules Factory - Lockheed Martin

Lockheed Martin Aeronautical Systems Company (LMASC), an operating unit of Lockheed Martin Corporation, located outside Atlanta in Marietta, Georgia, is home for the F-22 Raptor air dominance fighter and the C-130J Hercules, an advanced version of the world's most respected airlifter for military and humanitarian missions.

It has gained prominence for its production and support of cargo aircraft such as the C-130 Hercules, C-141 StarLifter, and C-5 Galaxy, and for maritime patrol and surveillance aircraft such as the P-3 Orion. Lockheed Martin also modifies and supports the S-3B Viking and ES-3A shadow carrier-based surveillance aircraft, and commercial aircraft such as the L-1011 TriStar widebody airliner and the JetStar business jet.

The company, with expertise in advanced aircraft design and production, modification and support, stealth technology, systems integration, and advanced tactics is part of the corporation's Aeronautics Sector, which today is the direct descendant of the original aircraft companies begun by Glenn Martin in 1911 and Allan and Malcolm Loughhead (later changed to Lockheed) in 1913.
