• Lockheed F/A-22 Raptor’s Nest
  • Product Demonstration Facility

The new Lockheed "Raptor's Nest" facility at Air Force Plant #6 in Marietta, Georgia was designed to provide VIP visitors and vendors with a close-up view of the new F/A-22 Raptor fighter now being flown by the U.S. Air Force.

Smoak Designs was contracted to develop display and conference facilities to aid Lockheed's promotion of the aircraft product. Design of this project was made challenging, in that the new display and conference space was placed on the manufacturing floor, alongside the assembly line, calling for special considerations for the high-end audio/video equipment used within the space.

The space boasts a "signature" door entry, a mock-up of the aircraft, and a flight simulator, allowing visitors to participate in an interactive exploration of the aircraft and its capabilities..
