Factory tour taking place at Lockheed Martin, in Moorestown

#tour#Lockheed #Martin #(LM) #magna-power #power #electronics#PPPEAC



We are excited to invite you to our next PPPEAC power-electronics factory tour taking place at Lockheed Martin, in Moorestown.  We have been granted special and limited access to the facility.  Tour is restricted to US persons (US citizens, US Green Card or US permanent residents).  Seniority will be given to PELS/IAS, IEEE, and then to the public (PPPEAC members), respectively.  Event will take place September 8th, from 6-8 pm. Additional arrival instructions will be provided upon selection. The Lockheed Martin Moorestown facility tour will show the main manufacturing floor where assembly of various components for radar and sensors and missile defense technology systems are assembled for both maritime and land-based applications.


Eventbrite Registration Link: 


At the last factory tour a lot of food went to waste due to no shows.  For this event we are introducing a small refundable fee at  time of registration.  We will reimburse attendees either electronically after the event or by cash at the door.  When registering for the event, answer the questionnaire completely, as Lockheed needs the information for additional screening. We are limiting ticket sales to 50 people, after which there will be a waitlist.  Ticket window will close on August 14th.


Arranging this event required lots of communications and  coordination.  Special thanks to our host and speaker Dr. John Tsinetakes for the invitation and our activities subcommittee chair Dr. Bogdan Proca for organizing. This will mark our second factory tour, an activity we hope to continue annually.   Please, if you are willing to host our group in the NJ/Philadelphia area contact our leadership at the bottom of this email.  No company, lab, or factory is too big or too small. We need volunteers and to keep the group. I will be stepping down soon and we will need new leadership to back fill the roles. 


Princeton-Philly Power Electronics Advancement Consortium (PPPEAC) was founded in 2019 to facilitate power electronics activities in the Central/South Jersey and Philadelphia regions.  These regions have a long history and abundance of power electronic practitioners, industry, labs, and focused educational programs.  Our mission is to encourage communication and engagement with these diverse groups so that we can learn, grow, and network.  We are sponsored by the IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS) and Industrial Application Society (IAS), and work under the guidance of the Princeton and Philadelphia IEEE sections.  Please share this email with whomever you think can benefit from joining the group.  Membership to PPPEAC is free, and can be online through our website
