The NBC Bay Area Revelations team were given access inside the world’s largest defense contractor, Lockheed Martin, while shooting the latest episode, “War, Protest & Prosperity.”
First a little history about this place: The Lockheed brothers started the company in San Francisco in 1912, developing their first seaplane here. Operations in Santa Clara County started in 1956 and the rest, as they say, is … history!
Watch "Bay Area Revelations: War, Protest & Prosperity," Sunday, September 24 at 10 p.m. after the Raiders game on NBC Bay Area. An encore presentation will air Saturday, September 30 at 6:30 p.m.
Take a sneak peek inside Lockheed Martin right now:
Lockheed Martin, which started in San Francisco in 1912, has grown into the world's largest defense contractor. It created the first nuclear missile to be fired from a submerged submarine during the Cold War, and is currently testing lasers at a secret site in the Bay Area to prepare for new threats, like drones.
