SAFE, INC. PRESENTED OUTSTANDING SMALL BUSINESS AWARD BY LOCKHEED MARTIN SPACE
Tempe, AZ – Safe, Inc., (Safe) was selected by Lockheed Martin Space as a 2021 Outstanding Small Business Awardee on September 16th, 2021, for providing exceptional support to the Orion Spacecraft Program.
“(Safe’s) support of the Crew Impact System provides critical services to the safety and well‐being of our astronauts,” according to Ms. Juanita Tavares, Director of Program Management and Subcontracts for Lockheed Martin Space.
Safe was one of only four small businesses to receive this prestigious award out of more than 10,000 suppliers to the global aerospace and defense firm based in Bethesda, MD.
The integration of Safe’s technology is critical to the success of the Lockheed Martin‐built Orion Spacecraft, which is NASA’s platform to return to deep space exploration by taking humans further into space than ever before. The first mission, Artemis I, is scheduled to launch in late 2021.
According to Rick A. Smith, Vice President of Global Supply Chain Management for Lockheed Martin Space, “Safe maintains excellent communication with their customer (Lockheed Martin), their suppliers and sub‐tier suppliers to reduce issues at all levels.”
