Lockheed Martin entered a U.S. Department of Defense mentor-protégé agreement with Aegisound LLC of Blacksburg, VA, and will assist the company as it becomes a supplier of advanced hearing-protection devices for military high-noise environments. Lockheed Martin Aeronautics will help Aegisound develop its capabilities for defense, aerospace, and commercial markets during a three-year period, working through the U.S. Navy Mentor-Protégé office. Aegisound’s hearing-protection devices, developed for the F-35 Lightning II program, resemble stereo headphones but employ active-noise-reduction technologies. The devices, which will replace legacy hearing-protection devices based on 50-year-old technology, will be worn on deck by aircraft carrier personnel during catapult launches and maintenance activities. As part of the mentor-protégé initiative, Lockheed Martin will team with Morehouse College’s Entrepreneurship Center in Atlanta, GA, to provide training, mentoring, and consultancy to Aegisound.
