Former Lockheed Aircraft Co. renamed Lockheed Corporation in September 1977. Merger with Martin Marietta announced 30 August 1994 and completed 15 March 1995. Further expansion resulted from the acquisition of Loral Corporation's defence electronics and systems integration businesses in April 1996 for approximately US$9.1 billion and completed purchase of Comsat in August 2000 for US$2.6 billion. Workforce total of about 125,000 in mid-2002. Net sales in 2002 reported as US$26.6 billion. Activities include design and production of aircarft, electronics, satellites, space systems, missiles, ocean systems, information systems, and systems for strategic defence and for command, control, communications and intelligence.
