Borgia led Lockheed Martin’s robotics, unmanned systems development

CAMBRIDGE, MA – Bill Borgia, who led robotics and unmanned systems work at Lockheed Martin Corp., has joined Draper to serve as mission systems director in the company’s Defense Systems program office.

Engineering Solution

The TRIDENT II Weapons System is the primary strategic deterrent for both the United States and the United Kingdom. Fourteen active U.S. Navy Ohio-class submarines carry Trident missiles, accounting for nearly half of U.S. strategic warheads; four Royal Navy Vanguard-class submarines also carry them.

Our Process

Ideas & Research

We work closely with academia and industry to identify the discoveries and new technologies that are solution enablers.

Concept

Our knowledge of how our customers will use a product—including their environment and operational constraints—informs how we conceptualize the solution.

Design and Prototype

Our modeling and simulation capabilities support rapid incorporation of new ideas and user feedback into virtual systems, demonstratable solutions, and fielded prototypes.

Transition

End-use of a product informs how we approach its transition to the field. We work with outside companies to prepare our prototype design for high-volume mass production, or can produce the device in-house when only limited quantities are needed.

Support

Our time spent in the field with sponsors provides them with critical technical support and provides us with valuable insight into the future needs of those customers.
