Lockheed Martin Invests in Nanotechnology

Feb. 28, 2011
Investment boosts nanotechnology lab at the University of Maryland.

Lockheed Martin -- a Bethesda-based global security company that is contracted primarily through the U.S. Department of Defense and other federal government agencies -- announced a $200,000 investment last week to the Dingham Center for Entrepreneurship to advance nanotechnology research underway at the university.

The funding will be spent on nanowire technology research that is developing sensors for robotic vehicles, said aerospace engineering professor Alison Flatau, one of the project's lead researchers.

Business school Dean Anand Anandalingam said Lockheed Martin's most recent show of support will take the university's long-standing partnership with the company to the next level.
