Lockheed Martin has been awarded two regional task orders totalling $72 million to help TSA integrate and deploy new passenger screening and security equipment at airports across the east and central United States. The task orders were awarded under the TSA's Security Equipment Systems Integration ...and include one base-year plus one option-year.
Under these orders, Lockheed Martin will assist TSA in deploying passenger screening technologies including Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT) equipment and software upgrades. The work will involve a complex integration of electrical systems, wireless technologies and existing airport infrastructure.
Lockheed Martin will perform installations at approximately 300 airports across the two regions. Work has already begun at airports in the eastern United States.

Why is it that Lockheed now is the predominant defense contractor? It certainly isn’t because they deliver on time, on budget and on specification. In fact, it seems quite the opposite.
Which pit to they have their suction in that makes them so favored? Who are they giving money to and how much?
Maybe they can make “TSA” equipment, they CERTAINLY can’t make Aircraft that is worth a Feces.
By merging with and ultimately absorbing 90% of all the other big-dollar defense contractors that have ever existed.
And radiation for all.
