ROCKVILLE, Md., July 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has completed delivery of the National Source Tracking System (NSTS) to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).

"Lockheed Martin began development on NSTS in 2005," said Bob Weisenbeck, director of NRC programs, Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Solutions - Civil.

This application will be integrated with the NRC's future Web Based Licensing (WBL) system that will strengthen the materials licensing process and the License Verification System (LVS) that will support verification of licensee authorized quantities. WBL and LVS are currently under development by Lockheed Martin.
