How We Innovate

Operating in an innovation ecosystem, we combine market-leading technical resources, strategic partnerships, and agile development capabilities to accelerate mission success.

For us, innovation is more than a concept, it’s our culture. It’s more than what we do, it’s who we are.  

In a landscape of rapid change and revolutionary capabilities, making progress isn’t just about what, it’s about when. We’re innovating at the pace of need to push the boundaries of possible and deliver mission-advancing technology at mission-leading speed.

For over 60 years, LMI has cultivated a synergy among partners in a robust innovation ecosystem of our deep subject matter experts, leading university centers, applied research labs, innovation consortia, and academic thought leaders. LMI built the Forge™, our technology studio, to explore and test new ideas and accelerate government organizations’ development time. We construct early-stage concepts on advanced technology by combining our federal market expertise with agile development and human-centered design.
