Lockheed Martin (LMT +1%) names Steven Walker as its new chief technology officer, coming from the Department of Defense's DARPA future warfare and technology agency, where he was a director.

Walker's efforts to develop hypersonic weapons and low-earth orbit satellites while at DARPA will help LMT as it pursues hypersonic weapons and to win future defense contracts, Reuters reports.

Walker replaces Keoki Jackson, who moves over to chief engineer and VP for the company's engineering and program operations.
