WASHINGTON The nation's largest military contractor is looking for partners to develop energy technologies.
Lockheed Martin Corp. (Bethesda, Md.), the huge military contractor, said Thursday (Feb. 19) it is seeking research partners with intellectual property to focus on the development of photovoltaic, smart grid, energy storage and carbon nanotube technologies.
The company said it is seeking proposals until March 6 as part of a week-long technology symposium in Houston from May 3-7.
"Lockheed Martin is looking for joint R&D, licensing and partnering opportunities towards applied research, intellectual property and early-stage companies focused on" the four technology areas, the company said in a statement.
The defense giant's interest in energy-related technologies underscores growing industry interest in technology-related provision of the U.S. economic stimulus package signed into law by President Barack Obama earlier this week.
