The Future of Autonomy
Isn't Human-Less.

It's Human

Technology is transforming how humans and machines work together. That’s why Lockheed Martin is investing in the development of optionally-manned and unmanned systems that serve as a capability multiplier. Because we recognize that the question isn’t just about who’s the best person for the job—it’s about what’s the best team for the mission.

Human-machine Collaboration: Teams Take Many Shapes

People are relying on machines to help them make better informed decisions, expand reach and access, and increase safety and productivity. This new era of human-machine collaboration depends on trust and understanding—allowing each component of the team to do what it does best.

Enabled by Advances in Autonomous Technologies

Lockheed Martin’s unmanned technologies enable our systems to go farther, operate longer and succeed in harsh or dangerous conditions. Within these systems are elements that make them smart – and ultimately help users make intelligent decisions.


Sense and identify environmental data


Compute and communicate data in real-time


Maintain uptime during critical missions


Working in sync with teams of humans and other systems

Artificial Intelligence

In an AI-enhanced future, humans will become better at everything; they’ll also become safer, less vulnerable to danger. That’s why Lockheed Martin continues to invest in and expand our AI and autonomy capabilities. AI adds value to almost all our products and systems, supporting both military and commercial customers.

AI-enabled autonomous systems are changing the way militaries operate and protect their forces, the way first responders fight fires, how researchers explore the far reaches of space and the ocean’s depths.

Meeting Challenging Missions

Unmanned Military Case Stu


As our service customers evolve their unmanned missions, we’re increasing expeditionary capabilities, providing longer endurance and beyond-line-of-sight communications, offering a wider variety of payloads and increased payload capabilities, and focusing on survivability and reliability.
Firefighting Case Study


Time is critical for first responders and firefighters, and unmanned systems can help to reduce both time and cost in scenarios like search and rescue, firefighting and disaster relief, where manned assets may be grounded, or roads unimproved.
Inspection Case Study


As commercial use of unmanned systems becomes more reliable and safe, new uses for these systems will continue to proliferate, which will increase productivity, reduce operating costs, and increase safety for workers.
