TRANSCRIPT

  • THE LOCKHEED MARTIN - UNIVERSITY OF

    MARYLAND STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP was

    formalized in June 2010, and provides a framework

    for closer cooperation between the two institutions

    in sharing and developing research, resources,

    talent and innovative solutions to national and global

    challenges. The Strategic Partnership promotes

    work in three key areas: Centers of Collaboration,

    joint pursuit of business opportunities, and enhanced

    Research and Development.

    FOR MORE INFORMATION or to get involved,

    please contact Eric Chapman, Assistant Vice

    President for Research Development, 301-405-7136,

    A STRONG PARTNERSHIP THRIVESThe Lockheed Martin University of Maryland Strategic Relationship continues to grow with new and diverse collaborations involving researchers across the campus and corporation.

    WORKING CLOSELY TOGETHERLockheed Martin and the University of Maryland continue to support each others research and workforce development needs, teaming together to win third party business and developing innovative solutions to national and global challenges.

    a great

    Aerospace engineering may come to mind

    when you think about a partnership between the

    University of Maryland (UMD) and Lockheed Martin,

    but this growing collaboration includes disciplines

    from across the University. Lockheed Martin and

    UMD work closely on projects in cognitive human

    performance, neuroscience, defense acquisition

    policy, quantum science and technology as well as

    others. Most recently physics and engineering

    teamed up with Lockheed Martin to launch the joint

    Quantum Engineering Center, led by Chris Monroe

    (Physics and Joint Quantum Institute), a Center of

    Collaboration whose mission is to design and build

    practical, integrated quantum processing devices.

  • UMD and Lockheed Martin interactions have recently included

    an array of topics including:

    Quantum thermodynamics (Chris Jarzynski, Chemistry and Institute for Physical Science & Technology, working with Corporate Engineering, Technology & Operations)

    Traumatic Brain Injury prediction (Luiz Pessoa, Psychology and Maryland Neuroimaging Center, working with Information Systems & Global Solutions)

    Executive education programs in international business culture and negotiation (Robert H. Smith School of Business working with International Engineering & Technology)

    A substantial review of defense acquisition processes and policy (Jacques Gansler, Public Policy)

    Joint proposals between UMD faculty and Lockheed Martin for Cybersecurity, NSF and Department of Energy programs

    A new Federal Acquisition Certificate Program has been

    established for Lockheed Martin employees at the Center for

    Logistic Collaboration, led by Jacques Gansler (Public Policy).

    The center works with Lockheed Martins Corporate Logistics

    and Sustainment group and was the first Center of Collaboration

    formed between Lockheed Martin and UMD. Started in 2008,

    this Center has conducted a range of research projects on

    logistics, sustainment, supply chain and acquisition issues for

    the Department of Defense. Graduate Research Associates

    from the center have been visiting Lockheed Martin facilities

    to brief their research and provide on-site training.

    Lockheed Martin is funding Bradley Hatfield (Professor

    and Chair) and Rodolphe Gentili (Assistant Professor), from

    the UMD Kinesiology Department, to

    study how expertise, stress, physical fatigue

    and information overload can affect the

    mental readiness of military personnel. Their

    team (including the US Naval Academy),

    in collaboration with Lockheed Martin

    Aeronautics Advanced Development

    Programs and Corporate Engineering,

    Technology & Operations, is developing a

    series of cognitive tests, using electroencephalography (EEG),

    eye tracking sensors and other bio-markers in operationally

    realistic settings such as cockpits, for fighter pilots and operators

    of unmanned aerial vehiclesboth jobs that demand a high

    level of alertness and the ability to make quick decisions. The

    team is also planning to develop machine learning algorithms

    for biomarkers selection and classification, in conjunction with

    Engineering, Computer Science and other collaborators. Past

    research, sponsored by Lockheed Martin, revealed the utility

    of dry EEG recordings (i.e., gel-free EEG electrodes) to assess

    cognitive workload.

    A long history together.These latest projects stand on

    the shoulders of a 60-plus year

    association between the university

    and Lockheed Martin, tracing its

    roots back to early involvement

    between aviation pioneer Glenn L.

    Martin and Marylands aeronautical

    engineering program. Other joint

    research projects in recent years

    include: advanced materials, sensors,

    lasers, genomics, computer vision,

    language translation, social

    networks, healthcare efficiency

    and energy storage.

    Lockheed Martin continues

    to maintain other close ties to

    the University, sponsoring student

    groups and campus events, intern-

    ships, recruitment of graduates,

    and strongly supporting Corporate

    Partners Programs and campus

    advisory boards.

    It is easy to collaborate, whether you are from UMD or Lockheed Martin.

    Enabling arrangements include:

    UNIVERSAL NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT: covers all University and Lockheed Martin personnel to engage in exploratory discussions

    on potential joint projects.

    MASTER RESEARCH AGREEMENT: provides a contractual vehicle and template for statements of work and contracts, designed to streamline

    the process for starting projects.

    CAMPUS SPACE: The Lockheed Martin Partnership Suite in the Kim Engineering Building provides office space and a conference room

    for Lockheed Martin visitors to use and for joint meetings.
