Lockheed Martin Teams with Purdue, New Mexico State and New Mexico Tech for Sandia CompetitionLeading Universities Bring World-Class Expertise in R&D, Tech TransferALBUQUERQUE, N.M., July 25, 2016 – Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has named a national research university and a consortium of New Mexico universities to its team competing for the Sandia National Laboratories Management and Operating contract. Purdue University, New Mexico State University and the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology will play key roles in Sandia’s specialized research and development and technology transfer initiatives.Each university will provide expert personnel and facilities to advance Sandia’s dynamic research and development programs, which are on the cutting edge of nuclear deterrence, cyber security, energy technologies, non-proliferation and advanced computing. In addition, the new team arrangements will allow students and faculty from the universities to interact more strategically at Sandia to promote collaboration, innovation and talent development.“Sandia’s hallmark is nationwide impact coupled with strong New Mexico roots, and we’ve built a team that reflects that character while positioning the Labs to meet the needs of a dynamic national security environment,” said Rick Ambrose, chair of the Sandia Corporation board of directors and executive vice president of Lockheed Martin Space Systems. “Our goal is to help the National Nuclear Security Administration further solidify Sandia’s role as a national asset by bringing in even stronger R&D partnerships, improving the national security talent pipeline and sparking small business growth through a robust commercialization program.”Purdue will lead technology transfer initiatives for Sandia, partnering with national and New Mexico-based start-ups and entrepreneurs to license technology for commercial use. Purdue’s Research Foundation and Purdue Foundry operate one of the most comprehensive technology transfer programs among leading research universities in the U.S.“Our missions in research, education and service align extremely well with those of Sandia and our partners in conducting work in the national public interest,” said Mitch Daniels, president of Purdue University. “The excellence of the partner researchers in areas of importance to national security combined with Purdue’s expertise in technology transfer make this a team without equal.”“As a higher education institution in New Mexico, New Mexico State University is excited to be part of the Lockheed Martin team and continue its support of Sandia and the Department of Energy by leveraging our excellent educational, research, and technology transfer and commercialization programs,” said Dr. Vimal Chaitanya, NMSU vice president for research. “NMSU has been a part of the fabric of Sandia for decades, as more than 25 percent of Sandia employees have received at least one degree from NMSU.”“This is a great opportunity for New Mexico Tech to work even more closely with Sandia,” said Dr. Van Romero, New Mexico Tech’s chief operating officer and vice president for research and economic development. “We have a long history with Sandia, and have developed programs, both academically and in our research, specifically to support Sandia over the years. This bid presents an opportunity to take our work with Sandia to the next level.”Since 1993, Sandia Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Lockheed Martin, has served as the Management and Operating contractor for the Labs, in support of the Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration. Sandia is currently meeting scope, schedule and cost requirements on six major engineering design programs supporting the nation’s nuclear deterrence mission and managing an additional $1 billion portfolio of cutting-edge energy and national security programs.About Lockheed MartinHeadquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs approximately 125,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and servicesFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail

It was a total team effort,” Burke added.The team celebrates the championship.In what was a statistically dominant performance by Ocean City, the Eagles of EHT were able to hang tough and keep it a close game.Senior Tara McNally scored her team high 27th goal of the season off a pass from fellow senior Alexis Smallwood to give the Raiders a 1-0 advantage late in the third quarter.EHT answered back on a stroke penalty, knotting the game at 1-1 and sending it into overtime.The first overtime would roll into the second when Ocean City was able to pressure in the circle with a shot in from McNally. Carly Hanin tipped the rebound from the EHT goalkeeper, securing the victory for the Red Raiders.“It felt amazing and surreal all at the same time,” Hanin said after the game. “I was so happy to be a part of the win for the team and especially for our seniors.”The seniors who donned the red and white Ocean City colors for the last time included Tara McNally, Sophia Ruh, Katie Bowman, Nya Gilchrist, Morgan Decosta, Alexis Smallwood, Tess Grimley and Chelsea Stack.Burke said the seniors left a lasting impression on the field hockey program.“This group of seniors were all in from day one and determined to leave their mark on the program. I am so proud of all they’ve accomplished and truly sad to see them go,” Burke said.Ocean City’s Brooke Hanley, in white shirt, gets a stick on the ball to keep EHT from heading upfield.
Upmarket cake shop and café chain Konditor & Cook has opened its sixth outlet near London’s Southbank. Located on Stamford Street, the shop’s layout is inspired by “a new take on the domestic kitchen”, which has been designed to showcase its best-known cakes and savouries.Personalised wedding cake consultations will take place at the shop, and a spokesperson for the firm confirmed that there are still plans in the pipeline to also run baking classes.The shop was designed by architect Kevin Allsop, and aims to create a friendly atmosphere where the division between customers and staff is broken down. There are no counters separating staff and customers and the hob, sink and kitchen paraphernalia is on full view. Owner Gerhard Jenne, who came up with the idea for the shop, said: “People who work from home have access to their kitchens, but need a home office, while those who work in offices also need the relaxed ambience of a domestic kitchen for a good chin-wag and to get their creative juices flowing.”
