Lockheed Martin selected employees from its local Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex business units to receive the NOVA Award, the corporation’s highest recognition for individual or team achievements. Less than one-half of 1 percent of the corporation’s 140,000 employees worldwide receive the honor each year.


To be considered for a NOVA award, individuals and teams must demonstrate outstanding contributions to the corporation’s mission and business objectives in the four categories of exceptional service, leadership, teamwork and technical excellence. 


Six of the individual honorees came from the Dallas/Fort Worth area: 

Additionally, more than 80 employees in Fort Worth were honored as members of teams including the F-16 Final Assembly Relocation Team, the F-35 AA-1 Engineering Readiness Team, the Pakistan F-16 Capture Team, the C-130J Restructure Team and a corporate Urban Operations Close Air Support Team.


Lockheed Martin chairman, president, and chief executive officer Robert J. Stevens will host the 12th annual NOVA Awards October 26 at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C.  The event will start with a reception followed by an awards ceremony in the Lockheed Martin IMAX theater and will end with a seated dinner in the Milestones of Flight gallery.


Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin employs approximately 140,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services.
