This Teradata award recognizes systems integrators who have developed
innovative industry-specific or cross-industry solution to address a distinct
business need.

"As a result of IGC, the effectiveness and efficiency of our supply chain has
increased," said Lieutenant Colonel Rod Aleandre, IGC Program Manager. "With
the growing, recurring sustainment costs of multiple legacy systems, there was
a real need for a single program of record for In-Transit Visibility data
resulting in substantial amount of cost savings and accelerated information
exchange, leading to improved warfighter readiness."

IGC provides its end users the capability to track "assets in motion" with
"end to end" supply chain visibility. With five years of historical data vice
180 days in the legacy system, users can perform predictive data analytics.
This is a powerful decision support tool enabling supply chain optimization
and cost savings.

"IGC provides a robust means for tracking supplies and leverages the host of
tools and enterprise services needed to improve the existing process," said
Angie Heise, vice president of Enterprise IT Solutions with Lockheed Martin
Information Systems and Global Solutions-Defense. "We strive to consistently
produce systems and solutions that enable our customers to convert their
information into faster action, higher value and accomplished missions."

Lockheed Martin's IGC production team includes Teradata, SAIC, Deloitte, SAP,
DNC, Onyx Consulting, Oakland Technologies, Rainbow Data Systems, and Innolog.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security and
aerospace company that employs about 120,000 people worldwide and is
principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture,
integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and
services. The corporation's net sales for 2011 were $46.5 billion.
