Lockheed Martin Corporation is leading a “transformation of the industry”, said Stephanie Hill, executive vice president of rotary and mission systems (RMS) at the company.

Speaking at the Farnborough International Airshow in July, Hill said: “There have been times in my career where I have said, ‘wow, I get to make a huge difference here. My team and I get to make a huge difference’.

“When you think about our industry, and you think about how our customers are requiring us and need us – we see what’s happening in the world right now – to deliver them eye-watering capabilities, more innovatively than we ever have before, faster than we ever have before, and with the same or better quality than we ever have before.

“Their needs are changing so very quickly that in order for us in industry to do this and help our nations maintain their competitive advantage, we have to be transformational.

“Right now what we’re doing with Lockheed Martin is we’re leading a transformation of our company, [and] we hope of the industry; we call it 21st century security.”
