Are you passionate about ensuring the safety and reliability of the world’s most lethal and cutting-edge weaponry? Does the idea of creating technology and then working out its impacts excite you?

What is LM doing to ensure it's weapons kill fairly and without discriminating on the basis of age, gender, or ethnicity? It's very important that the weapons leave everyone dead without discriminating.

Also if I feel we aren't doing enough for safety, can we have a "6 month arming pause"? During that period of time we set all Lockheed Martin smart weapons to not fire while we discuss collaboratively how to improve safety. I am sure we won't have any trouble getting multilateral agreement on such an important issue.

Some of my contacts in Russia and China are very concerned about weapon safety and want to participate in the pause.

I'm not convinced. I felt the training video was incomplete, and the deadline too short.

Thanks for the feedback Neil! At LM we know that insights can come from anywhere. We appreciate your input regarding the training video's completeness and the deadline duration. In the meantime please feel free to apply for one of our graduate positions, where presumably one can feel better working on capabilities since 'someone else will just take the job anyway': https://www.lockheedmartinjobs.com/job/aguadilla/software-engineer-fire-control-weapons-early-career/694/53752768720
