Lockheed announced in November its plans to combine two units in its electronics systems business - the former Maritime Systems & Sensors business, based in Washington, D.C., and its Systems Integration unit in Owego, N.Y. The newly combined unit, Mission Systems & Sensors, will provide services to maritime forces. It currently employs about 16,000 workers. Its headquarters is in Washington, but workers are spread at many locations including Baltimore, Md.; Syracuse, N.Y.; Akron, Ohio; and others.
Lockheed spokeswoman Anne Marie Squeo said the cuts would not be confined to any one location and the facility in Owego would remain open.
