Date:6/23/2008

Company to support the Coordinating Office for Terrorism Preparedness and

Emergency Response

SEABROOK, Md., June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) was selected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to provide Information Technology services to the agency's Coordinating Office for Terrorism Preparedness and Emergency Response (COTPER) in Atlanta. This task order has one base year and three option years, with an estimated program value of more than $24 million.

Awarded within the scope of an already competed Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) under a General Services Administration schedule, the contract calls for Lockheed Martin to provide Information Technology support to elements of COTPER including systems architecture, Web design, application development and support, management, and security.

COTPER provides strategic direction to the agency for all terrorism preparedness and emergency response activities. COTPER manages the CDC Public Health Emergency Preparedness Cooperative Agreement which provides guidance and funding to state and local jurisdictions to enhance their preparedness and response capacity, oversees the CDC Emergency Operations Center, regulates entities that use or transfer biological agents or toxins, and manages the Strategic National Stockpile.

DeEtte Gray, vice president of Lockheed Martin Enterprise Solutions and Services' professional services unit, said, "We are proud to have been selected to carry out the vital IT support needs of the CDC as it fulfills its mission to prepare the nation to respond to emergency public health challenges. We commit to deliver the best level of service required to help these CDC professionals in their critical effort."

Lockheed Martin currently provides COTPER support under the BPA awarded in January 2007, under which the company provides business consulting and the performance of technical, professional, logistical, engineering and administrative tasks. The company also supports the agency and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry under the enterprise-level CDC Information Technology Contract.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin employs about 140,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The Corporation reported 2007 sales of $41.9 billion.
