LOCKHEED MARTIN CORPORATION

DEFERRED MANAGEMENT INCENTIVE

COMPENSATION PLAN

(As Amended and Restated Effective January 1, 2007)

ARTICLE I

PURPOSES OF THE PLAN

The purposes of the Lockheed Martin Corporation Deferred Management Incentive Compensation Plan (the “Deferral Plan”) are to provide certain key management employees of Lockheed Martin Corporation and its subsidiaries (the “Company”) the opportunity to defer receipt of (i) Incentive Compensation awards under the Lockheed Martin Corporation Management Incentive Compensation Plan (the “MICP”); (ii) Long Term Incentive Award payments under the Lockheed Martin Corporation 1995 Omnibus Performance Award Plan (the “Omnibus Plan”) and the Lockheed Martin Corporation Amended and Restated 2003 Incentive Performance Award Plan (the “IPA Plan”); and (iii) certain benefits payable under the Lockheed Martin Corporation Post-Retirement Death Benefit Plan for Elected Officers (“Death Benefit Plan”). Providing this opportunity to defer income under the Deferral Plan will encourage key employees to maintain a financial interest in the Company’s performance. Except as expressly provided hereinafter, the provisions of this Deferral Plan and the MICP, the Omnibus Plan, the IPA Plan, and the Death Benefit Plan shall be construed and applied independently of each other.

The Deferral Plan applies solely to MICP awards, Long Term Incentive Award payments under the Omnibus Plan and the IPA Plan, and certain payments under the Death Benefit Plan, and expressly does not apply to any special awards which may be made under any of the Company’s other incentive plans, except and to the extent specifically provided under the terms of such other incentive plans and the relevant awards.

The Deferral Plan was amended and restated, effective January 1, 2005, in order to comply with the requirements of Code section 409A. The 2005 amendment and restatement of the Deferral Plan applied only to the portion of a Participant’s Account Balance that is earned or becomes vested on or after January 1, 2005 (and any earnings attributable to that portion). The portion of a Participant’s Account Balance that was earned and vested prior to January 1, 2005 (and any earnings attributable to that portion) shall be governed by the terms of the Deferral Plan in effect on December 31, 2004, which is attached hereto as Appendix A. The Deferral Plan is hereby amended and restated, effective January 1, 2007, to permit eligible executives of the Company to defer payments that are available to them pursuant to the partial termination of the Death Benefit Plan.
